I disagree that Joe Clark's position of "giving a nod to marijuana users 
... will hardly endear him to traditional conservatives." ("Fad-ed stars," 
June 16.)

Traditional conservatives like myself applaud any move to reduce the power 
of government to interfere unnecessarily in the personal lives of its 
citizens. Those who call themselves conservative and support big government 
are Liberals in a blue dress.
