Legalizing drugs makes sense

The Editor,

Re: "Take the profit out of drugs," the News, Nov. 14.

Thank you so much for publishing that wonderful article by Keith
Baldrey regarding our horrendous drug problem.

I am a senior myself and I know it is very hard to face the fact that
legalizing drugs makes sense. We always follow exactly what the U.S.
does by a few years and now look at the mess we are in -- it did not
work there and it won't work here.

It probably would be hell for the first few years but just look what
legalizing booze has done. Yes, it is a problem for some but nothing
like the drug business.
