“Drugs: Cross Purposes and Mixed Messages”

Let’s see. On one hand, states such as Colorado and Washington are legalizing marijuana. In legislative circles, it’s the “in thing” to do. On the other hand, NFL draft prospects are failing drug tests and said to be “costing themselves” millions of dollars. They are now “risky” draft choices.

When it comes to drugs, is our society operating at “cross purposes” and sending “mixed messages?” Yes, it is. And it’s not the first time. Hypocrisy exists at all levels of government and throughout our society. The attitude “Do as I say, not as I do” is as prevalent as tornadoes in Oklahoma in April, May, and June.
