Paul Ruiterman (Legal drugs the most frequent killers, study finds,
Question, Dec. 18) got a bull's-eye exposing one facet of North America's
drug problems. Now let's expose what is not legal: cannabis (marijuana). The
relatively safe, socially acceptable, God-given plant cannabis hasn't killed
anyone in over 5,000 years of documented use, yet it is classified along
with heroin and more dangerous than meth or coke.

And there's part of the problem. Prohibitionist government's lies,
half-truths and propaganda insisting cannabis is so bad has the effect
of creating contempt toward warnings of highly addictive and deadly

How many adults try cannabis and realize it's not nearly as harmful as
taught in DARE-type government environments and think other substances
must not be so bad either, only to become addicted to deadly substances?
