Re Pot smokers become zombies. I was amazed by letter writer Erika 
Kubassek's claim that "those who use marijuana, much alcohol or harder 
drugs open their soul to evil influences - and later become out-of-control 
zombies of no benefit to anyone." How is it that no one has noticed the 150 
million or more "zombies" worldwide that her claim would imply? Of course, 
her position is completely and thoroughly discredited by the very Senate 
report that she seeks to criticize.

She has only one criticism evenly remotely based in fact (a complaint about 
driving under the influence), but she seems totally unaware that the Senate 
committee directly addressed this issue. Perhaps people like Kubassek 
should actually read those 600 pages of scientific evidence, factual 
findings and enlightened commentary, and open their minds before opening 
their mouths.
