There are consequences to your words, so you should measure them carefully. Prohibition is a terribly destructive force in society, not a joke. Millions of people are in jail. Millions die in needless wars. Innocents are ensnared. Governments are corrupted. You shouldn't care because I'm offended, of course, You should care because of the reasons why I am offended. You should care because you have spit in the face of the oppressed, the imprisoned, the dying and the dead.

Subject: your article about marijuana
As a marijuana smoker and activist, I was very offended by your article on the subject (which I saw linked on Reddit). This is a serious struggle, in which many real lives are destroyed by persecution every day. If you can't bring yourself to speak seriously about the subject, you should stay quiet. We are real, we are fighting, and we have a lot of weight to lift already without the added burden of your thoughtless scorn.
