I agree with everything you just said.
But the scandal is the hypocrisy of the situation. The leaders telling
us "don't do this" but then putting themselves above the very activities
they have been appointed to fight against. Exposing political
hypocrisy, especially on "no-victim" crimes like prostitution and
marijuana, is great fun.
