Deputy Chief William Brooks, thank you for writing the article that
appeared in this weekend's edition of The Patriot Ledger ( " Weed is
no longer a crime; how  did we get here " , Nov. 29). Finally,
someone with some sense spoke out against the topic. I think
Massachusetts voters are crazy in their vote to allow use of pot for
up to one ounce and I could not agree more with all of your comments.
Wish they paid you $4,000 to do a commercial against this craziness. I
am no prude but have nieces and nephews and care about their safety.
Legalizing or decriminalizing something that is still illegal is just
absurd. People high on pot are just as likely to create motor vehicle,
boating and airplane accidents (as) drunk ones. Hopefully someday this
could get repealed. Thank you for speaking out.
