Some rationality on the FDR comparison

Here's something FDR did in his first 100 days:

Roosevelt was not without a sense of humor. The third measure to go forward was a request to amend the Volstead Act to permit the sale of beer and wine. “I think this would be a good time for a beer,” the president told his aide Louis Howe. The 21st Amendment, which repealed Prohibition, was not adopted until December 5, 1933, but Roosevelt’s proposal provided interim relief.

Well, I think this would be a good time for a joint. Because, gawd knows, I need some "interim relief."

Obama's base agrees.

So how about it? Not that I want to "question the scale of our ambitions." Heaven forfend. I mean, it's only something the voters overwhelmingly agree with, and the right thing to do.

where I can get some? Small quantities are legal in this state now. I only want a small quantity. Enough for a batch of brownies! Jeez, I got to get some cocoa too!
