Re: Biggest pot bust ever (Sentinel-Review, July 5).

On and on it goes, bust after bust after bust, while marijuana remains as 
plentiful and available as ever and the jails are filled to overflowing 
with the unfortunate few who were caught with the stuff.

On and on it goes, with the media immersing us all with a torrent of drug 
bust stories from the cops' perspective, with nary a word from their 
victims, their families or from those like me who oppose drug prohibition.

On and on it goes, with the media falling over themselves promoting our 
oppressive drug laws, whose only purpose is to distract and entertain the 
majority by persecuting an innocent minority.

Are we better than the Nazis, because our drug laws threaten an innocent 
minority with jail rather then with execution? I think not.

Are you better than the Nazi-controlled media that distributed Hitler's 
hateful propaganda? I believe you are worse, much worse, because you have 
the freedom to present a balanced picture but, perhaps to support wealthy 
media owners who fear giving too much freedom to the "common rabble", 
choose not to do so.
