So, apparently, less liberty would be a good thing...

...according to one Georgia state representative:

I am opposed to the legalization of marijuana. I think we should go to caning for people caught using and maybe execute dealers. That would solve the problem as well. That is what they do in Singapore and they don’t have a drug problem, but then they have less liberty than we do here.
Wow, what does one say to that? He acknowledges Singapore's alleged lack of a drug problem and less liberty but apparently doesn't waver from his position. Caning and execution for what is more or less a victimless breaking of a malum prohibitum law? For some strange and unknown reason the term "domestic enemy" comes to mind. I'm sure I'll figure out the reason for that sooner or later.
