I agree with this article and the comments, particularly with respect to the "war on drugs" which is a huge waste of money and a big failure. Along the same "moral lines" are the bans on smoking here in places like Arizona. I can understand logical health arguments about smoking bans in public places, where people are being exposed to secondhand smoke against their will. However, in their private affairs, people can choose not to smoke and not to be around it for health or moral reasons. But to tell a private tavern that that it is not allowed to let its customers smoke seems to be a bit much, since no one is forced to do business at the tavern in the first place.
For the Bible believers, I fail to understand why they think that consuming alcohol is wrong, since one of the supposed miracles of Jesus was to transform water into wine.
Not only do these people attack the use of plants and the humans that eat them, but livestock is constantly under attack. Here's an appalling article that I read about Forest Guardians' tactics: Bidding Wars.
These well-meaning (or maybe not so well-meaning) folks seem to promote a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" philosophy concerning the environment. You're right. Maybe they do think that mass genocide is the solution.
