Sumptuary law: FIFTY years ago Alan Watts called for legalized drugs, sports gambling, etc.

50 some years ago Alan Watts was giving lectures on WFMU in Jersey City, NJ. One of them on 'Drug Abuse' was a call for moves that are finally coming true.

Watts called on legalizing sports gambling, drugs, prostitution and gambling. What could towns do if possessing 1.7 ounces of marijuana (50 grams) WASN'T a crime? Cops should only be called on to:

A) Protect us from robbery
B) Protect us from violence
C) Direct traffic
D) Give aid to the distressed


Alan Watts was also amazed priests were focused on the 'no masturbation rule' and why USA citizens would choose Authoritarian religions.
