It may open doors, but it doesn't mean we can't close them because we recognize there are issues.
I'm for the legalization of marijuana. Are you against it, because people would then want the legalization of cocaine?
I'd argue that I'm non-committal to SSM because of the polygamy door. I don't think it's an unreasonable position to have.
I'm against it because it robs you of ambition. Experience speaking. But, yeah, I think it cracks a door. I don't know if cocaine gets in because of addiction/health issues but the door is cracked for legalization of other, currently illegal drugs. Of course, the legalized drug issue is pretty damn complex(more complex than SSM, IMO). I can't argue that a dose of govt-controlled herion is infinitely "safer" than street smack.
