It is encouraging to read Chuck Beyer's letter, "MP misses point on pot 
legalization", Oct. 8 and Alan Randell's letter "War on drugs a 
manipulative ruse", Oct. 8, because it's time to end this embarrassing part 
of North American history.

The original prohibition on a national scale was worse than the booze 
prohibited and the sequel, now, on an international scale is worse.

At the very minimum, North America must re-legalize cannabis, especially 
when you consider the worst side effects of cannabis are police inflicted.

Caging humans for using cannabis, is so mean spirited, vile and repulsive, 
that it should be asked if cannabis prohibitionists really even comprehend 
that they're admitting, a desire to cage humans for using a plant?
