If Betty Kurk is being honest when she says that she was duped into signing 
the petition for Question 9, and that she wants to have her name removed, 
she should be obliged. Billy's group should also be held accountable. 
However, passage of Question 9 would not lead to chaos, confusion and 
broken lives. That is what prohibition leads to.

Passage of Question 9 would lead to more funds available for honest 
education and other proactive strategies that are proven to be more cost 
effective for combating drug use.

Ask yourself this, is it easier to prevent a fire from starting, or to stop 
it once it has started.

Thank you for your consideration,

Jason Marrs
