TO THE EDITOR: I just want to say thanks for the coverage. I e-mailed you 
five times. I faxed you and I called you. I made every effort possible to 
reach out to you guys at The Stranger, but no matter what, you ignored the 
biggest issue in America. You made your lead story in this week's issue a 
guy that founded the Hempfest ["Home Grown," Hannah Levin, Aug 14]. His 
efforts are terrific but you have ignored the very big group of cops, 
judges, and law enforcement people who have come out in opposition to the 
drug war. I don't get it.

Frankly, I'm offended by your non-coverage. This issue is gigantic. You 
have shown you really don't care.

Mike Smithson,
