Regarding "Marijuana March" (5/2): Your federal government must really hate 
its citizens. Ashcroft, Bush et al now preside over the largest prison 
population since Nazi Germany. With 700 of every 100,000 citizens in jail 
compared to 115 in Canada and 50 in Europe it appears to me that in spite 
of all the rhetoric about freedom in the U.S. your government is busy 
destroying it completely.

If you folks ever get fed up you are welcome back any time.
