    The problem with having too many laws is that you have to back them up with the threat of violence. If you are going to criminalize drug use, for instance, you have decided that you are willing to send people to kick in your neighbor’s door, with guns drawn and haul him off to jail for doing something as innocuous as smoking pot.
