Our slightly more enlightened neighbors across the pond are making moves 
toward a more pragmatic marijuana policy, as evidenced in 'South London Pot 
Smokers Are Hit With Warnings, Not Warrants' (July 15). What will our 
government do when the United Kingdom takes the next logical step and 
legalizes cannabis. Probably rant and scream because it is undermining the 
hard-fought, absolute failure we call the war on drugs. In the meantime, a 
more sensible approach to drug policy will make the UK a safer and more 
productive country, as law enforcement will be free to pursue real crime.
