I have no idea if legalizing pot is a good idea or not, but Nick Gillespie is just so dreamy.
One reason not to legalize it? Getting the munchies will be an exercise in frustration once the FDA gets its hands on that bag of chips:
The Food and Drug Administration is planning an unprecedented effort to gradually reduce the salt consumed each day by Americans, saying that less sodium in everything from soup to nuts would prevent thousands of deaths from hypertension and heart disease. The initiative, to be launched this year, would eventually lead to the first legal limits on the amount of salt allowed in food products.
The government intends to work with the food industry and health experts to reduce sodium gradually over a period of years to adjust the American palate to a less salty diet, according to FDA sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the initiative had not been formally announced.
Dude, the government doesn’t even think you can handle pretzels. What makes you think they’ll ever legalize pot?
