Crystal Scherer (author of May 3 letter, "Keep marijuana illegal"), you 
know far less about marijuana. Marijuana has been known about for more than 
2,000 years. It has been reported to be one of the safer drugs for human 
use. So don't disagree with people who have cancer. Do you have cancer?

But Crystal, let me say this to you. Do stay away from alcohol and tobacco. 
I am 40 years old and have seen the damage it can do.

I am for legalized marijuana -- hemp. But one thing you may be right about: 
Marijuana may not be for kids like you.
