The editorial in today's issue of the Washington Times bemoans America's slow decline into hell (ie. the loosening of restrictions on recreational marijuana use in Washington state). It all started with rock music, which "achieved respectability decades ago."
From the always-entertaining editorial board at the Times:
The counterculture, now as mainstream as the ‘60s mantra of “sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll,” has been written into federal code. Rock music achieved respectability decades ago. The Obamacare mandate that employers provide contraception coverage at no cost will soon ensure that free sex is indeed free. Now pot has cracked the barrier of acceptability. As “just say no” to drugs fades into history, Americans must face the consequences of saying yes.
