Prohibition is a nanny state, liberal idea that the government should protect you from your own stupidity.
—  Howard Wooldridge, former police detective and member of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, arguing that conservatives should agree with marijuana legalization. Growing or possessing small quantities of recreational marijuana is now legal in Washington, D.C. for those 21+, although some say the measure is illegitimate because D.C. is technically under the jurisdiction of Congress.
