About Food for the Thinkers
My name is Doug Newman. I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver. Food for the Thinkers is mostly about the connection between Christianity and libertarianism.

Given the fact that some elected leaders in the U.S. have admitted to using drugs like Marijuana, I find it hypocritical for them to have used said drug or other drugs and want to deny us the right to make these same choices. Being busted for under age drug use should warrant a disciplinary action. People who are 21 or older should be able to use them if they want to without legal repercussions.
