The Editor,

Re. "One street, two grows" and "Chemicals related to meth seized from
storage facility" (front page, The Tri-City News, Jan. 13).

In the Jan 13 Tri-City News, the front cover had news of raids on grow
ops and discovery of chemicals related to the production of
methamphetamine. I'm sure questions came into many readers' minds as
to how we can make the Tri-Cities safe, responsible and crime-free.

I have your answer: End the prohibition of drugs.

I would suggest to Tom Cox, secretary of the Westwood Plateau
Community Association, that if he is serious about eradicating the
area's bad reputation, he pressure his MP about drug

Legal marijuana, crystal meth or any drug would look a lot different
than they do now. Under safe and legal conditions, there would be no
more need for grow houses or meth labs in residential zones anymore
because it would be provided in a safe, adult setting.
