Thanks for publishing recent letters in support of legalizing marijuana.

Every major government study on cannabis has recommended at a minimum that 
we remove criminal sanctions for cannabis possession and use. Many 
recommend full legalization or regulation for all drugs.

Our current policies have done nothing to protect our children. In fact, 
they are in more danger now in regards to the known quality and quantity of 
drugs available.

Drug dealers won't card your child before selling to them.

How many more government studies must we endure, at the taxpayers' expense, 
before we finally carry out their recommendations?
