Dear Sir,

Reading your story on the internet about the DEA conducting still more raids
on individuals and groups conducting legal grow operations makes it
perfectly clear to me how silly things have become in the name of the silly
(and tragic) drug war.

Just visualizing a team of federal agents going in and ripping up from the
ground 20 ordinary plants, and I also recall images of Elliot Ness and his
boys going through and doing the very same righteous seizing of whiskey kegs
or bottles.

Those images from many movies that have been made about social phenomena
during that time of the Noble Experiment. This drug prohibition could be
called the Noble and Cruel Experiment. Or the Noble and Immoral Experiment.

Very truly yours,

Richard Sinnott
