According to Natural News, there is no question that pot possession should be completely decriminalized in a free society where individual choices are respected. At the same time, anyone who agrees with that philosophy must simultaneously agree that the selling of safely produced raw milk from farms to consumers must also be embraced as perfectly legal.
Like milk, the sales of human-produced liquid substances must also be considered legal, too, including the sale of human breast milk and even human sperm. Yet all of these have been repeatedly and aggressively attacked by federal regulators.
Continuing down the path of libertarian thinking, a society that truly respects the free choices of individuals would, by definition, have to also embrace the legality of personal behaviors like prostitution, gambling and gay marriage. All of these involve individuals making their own private choices, even if somebody else doesn’t agree with the substance of those choices.
In a truly free society, in other words, no government would have any philosophical basis from which to restrict people from buying and drinking alcohol, buying and smoking pot, paying other consenting adults for sex, marrying people of the same sex, or even attempting their own suicide as long as no one else is harmed in the process.

How do you distinguish between Control and Empowerment?
A person who seeks to teach others how to garden and thereby grow their own food is practicing empowerment and is therefore GOOD. But a person who seeks to place other people on government food stamps and thereby make them dependent on government for their food is practicing control and is inherently EVIL.
A school that teaches students to think for themselves and engage in critical, skeptical thinking about the world around them is practicing empowerment and is therefore GOOD. But a school that teaches students blind obedience to institutional authority while denying them the liberty to think for themselves is practicing control and is therefore EVIL.
A person who seeks to help others create their own successful businesses and generate abundant profits for themselves and their employees is practicing empowerment and is therefore GOOD. But a person who seeks to destroy entrepreneurship, suppress innovation, punish small businesses and burden private sector job creation with onerous taxes and regulation is practicing control and is therefore EVIL.
A person who seeks to teach others how to protect themselves against violent crime through the intelligent, ethical use of weapons for self defense is practicing empowerment and is therefore GOOD. But a person who seeks to strip away from everyone else their right to self defense, placing them in the position of defenseless victimization, is practicing control and is therefore EVIL.
