The poster is sponsored by a marijuana decriminalization organization. It shows an old woman beneath the words, "I smoke responsibly."

What's the function of that final word? It must mean she doesn't do anything fun. She doesn't gobble up 180g bags of Doritos while laughing at Cheech & Chong records; she doesn't write bad poetry; she doesn't make porn.

So why bother decriminalizing it? If we dopers have to suddenly act responsibly, then aren't we simply gaining another set of masters and another set of laws?

Instead of "I smoke responsibly," shouldn't it say, "I am willing to smoke obediently?"
