[Re: "Prohibition, pot and politics," News, April 24]

I am a retired law enforcement officer and one of the first 20 Federal
Medical Marijuana Exemptees in Canada.

I, like Boris St. Maurice, Adam Greenblatt and others, know that Bill
C-26 is detrimental to our society as a whole and will NEVER work.

To look to our neighbours to the south and copy what they have done is
preposterous! Americans are jailing one in 100 adults for drugs. This
CAN'T happen in Canada!

Youth, mom-and-pop medical gardens and chronically and critically ill
people will be targeted.

Please people, educate yourselves to this horribly destructive bill
and vote against Bill C-26. Drugs are a health issue and should remain
so. No one should EVER be jailed for a plant. Our country's youth
depend on you to know the TRUTH.
