Mahalo for printing letters on the dangers of overusing or misusing
marijuana. I accept the sincerity of most writers, if not their
prohibitionist mentality. For those with similar mindsets I say fine, don't
try marijuana and experience it for yourself.

Don't make a tincture, tea or poultice with the safe, natural herb used for
thousands of years.

Don't invest in GW Pharmaceuticals of Great Britain, which finished its
successful clinical trials of non-smoked cannabis remedies and have gone
public on the London Stock Exchange.

Don't go to any health food store and buy delicious hempseed foods for their
vegetarian protein or their essential fatty acid content and immune-building
qualities, and don't strip the plaque out of your arteries with hempseed

Don't wear soft, strong, organic hemp clothing or purchase tree-free hemp
paper to help save the forests and assist the world's ecology. Don't fuel
your car with clean-burning, sustainably grown hemp oil or methanol.

Whatever you do, don't enjoy the mystical, aphrodisiac qualities of cannabis
smoke and shared breath with your lover ... but please, allow the rest of us
the freedom of choice in the matter. Mahalo.
