Re: The police aren't experts on drug use, July 13.

Thank you, Dan Gardner! I've been waiting for someone to point out 
that the police are not health or science experts, and we should not 
swallow as truth their so-called facts about marijuana.

The police should simply enforce laws instead of trying to influence 
what the laws are, which they do with police association lobbyists 
and regular press announcements aimed to scare the general public 
about "the demon weed."

No more quoting police officers in the media when it comes to 
marijuana use. Let's hear from qualified experts in the right field 
of knowledge.
