****************************************************** Well, they believe in the Constitution of the United States and they interpret several ammendments in such a way as to think neither state nor federal governments have the right to determine what people put in their bodies. How people conduct themselves under the influence is a different subject. But just putting people in prison because they possess something or are exchanging something? I have a big problem with those laws, too.
