Taylor Hall's misinformed "Anti-Marijuana, Pro-Illegalization," (Dec. 
7, 2006) lacks any perspective on reality.

Most people notice cannabis (kaneh bosm / marijuana) is a plant, not 
a drug like methamphetamine, oxycontin and heroin, irregardless of 
what propagandic government dictates.

Efforts of the "Surgeon General's warning" is compromised, rendered 
useless and ignored with contempt when it lies to the public stating 
"marijuana has 70 percent more carcinogenic hydrocarbons than tobacco 
smoke and has the potential to cause cancer of the lungs and 
respiratory tract" since there are no dead bodies to show for it in 
over 5,000 years of documented use, yet over 1,000 Americans die of 
tobacco related cancer daily. Who would trust a warning label on a 
pack of cigarettes or a bottle of alcohol if it lies about cannabis 
causing cancer? For the government to lie to its citizens is a crime 
that should end.

Citizens enjoy cannabis and disobey cannabis prohibition as readily 
as driving over the speed limit; the difference is speeding may 
endanger the public.

Out of 62 percent of drug rehabilitation cases due to cannabis, the 
majority are people attending simply to avoid being caged for using 
the God-given plant. Plant, as in, Christ God Our Father indicates He 
created all the seed-bearing plants, saying they are all good, on 
literally the very first page of the Bible (see Genesis 1:11-12 and 29-30).
