I am a 45 year old female, married, mother of two and a nursing student. 
After reading textbooks I also know that marijuana is less harmful than 
alcohol as indicated in my studies.

I like Howard Dean and his style and believe he can beat Bush because Bush 
is self-destructing like I knew he would.

However, Howard Dean should visit the jails that imprison pot smokers and 
see what jailing pot smokers has done.  Jail makes hardened crooks out of 
easy-going decent pot smokers and this is a civil rights abuse.

Howard Dean, wake up and be a total out liberal and give the antidrug czars 
a pink slip.  Let these pompous clowns get a job in a nursing home and try 
helping out people instead of ruining lives.
