commented on While Trying to Woo Black Voters, Rand Paul Says Terrible Things About Education
@10 I consider myself very liberal and I think you are dead wrong. I'm all about killing the war on drugs, ending corporate welfare (to a degree), ending wars overseas, and trimming govt where it makes sense (programs that have proven to be ineffective for example). I'm also all about cutting defense spending. I'd also love to kill the death penalty (extremely costly) and legalize prostitution. Where libertarianism really loses me is there belief that pure capitalism is the be-all and end-all solution for all the countries problems.

Isn't it more like $13 a gram. The post says $26.50 for two grams with $6.68 in taxes. So retail is actually under $10 a gram which isn't too bad. Grew up paying $40 for an 1/8th (3.5 grams) so this isn't far off. It's not cheap and it's not what I pay these days but it's not outrageous.
