They say we're hell-bound sinners

My Broken-Winged Angel, where's the harm?
This is more than merely an academic exercise. The tide really began turning for medical marijuana use (and yes, I also believe eventual decriminalization) with the popularity of country songs, such as "Wildwood Weed", "Long-Haired Country Boy" and "Copperhead Road", dealing approvingly with such a perspective (these things take about a generation to percolate through). If we wish to see governmental restrictions also removed from other victimless crimes, such as prostitution, homosexuality, etc., we need to get those memes sung by heartland America, so that, first the polls, then the political sea will change regarding them.
