Re: Cannabis debate a blast from past, Letter, Feb. 26.

The only "blast from the past" I detect here is Tom Cook's letter and the 
notion that cannabis use deserves continued police harrassment and jail 
terms. The "good and responsible citizens of Toronto" whom I know encourage 
a more enlightened and reasoned approach to the widespread and 
statistically unstoppable use of marijuana.

Just as the federal Conservative party seeks privately to encourage the 
departure of "Neanderthals" from its ranks, so also do rational Canadians 
seek to diminish the influence of socially Neanderthal points of view.
