Opening Arguments

High times

The result of a vote by Purdue University students should surprise no one. About 54 percent voted in the affirmative on this question:

It asked students if the penalties for marijuana use should be the same as those for alcohol. Currently, students are kicked out of residence halls if they are found using marijuana. Alcohol consumption includes lesser penalties.

Actually, everybody might be better off if they went the other way and made the penalties for alcohol the same as the ones for marijuana. But there I go again, trying to foist my fuddy duddy standards off on the kids.

The solution is obvious . . . increase the penalties for excessive and underage alcohol consumption.

The students are correct . . . "whats good for the goose . . . "
