Editor, The Auburn Plainsman:

As a Colorado citizen who voted for Amendment 20 allowing people to use 
cannabis medicinally in my state, I agree with Rep.  Laura Hall ("Medical 
Pot In Alabama?" Feb. 10, 2005) and point out politicians normally do 
poorly in supporting their constituents on this issue, yet in every recent 
case that reaches the ballot box, it has passed by wide margins. Now, 
Coloradoans use the plant cannabis, following state law simultaneously, and 
it works. Since Colorado enacted its initiative, cannabis use has not 
increased, and so far the sky hasn't fallen.

Government would like citizens to think cannabis is a chemical weapon
of mass destruction. In reality, it is one of those seed-bearing
plants God created and said is good on literally the very first page
of the Bible.
