Saying 'Its against the law' is not a moral argument. Would you stand by your quote if we were referring to black people as property during the 19th Century?mistermain said:That being said, marijuana is still illegal, so I do support any punishment handed out to offenders (use or sell). I do not agree with the law, but I do agree we must abide by it.

Well I wouldn't shoot the slaveowner either. That would be murder. However, I would indeed help free slaves. Just because they were considered property under the law does not make it absolute.mistermain said:The answer to your question is that if the law allowed slavery, I would join the fight to repeal it, but I would still abide by it (meaning I wouldn't shoot the slaveowners and free the slaves).
