Re: "Harper disappoints," (Letters, March 28).

At the end of the letter, your editorial comment was "(Most Canadians 
don't support legalization.)" This is categorically untrue. The most 
recent polls show that 53% support legalization, just under 30% don't 
care one way or the other, and about 20% still feel, like you, that 
we should continue to subsidize organized crime and people should go 
to jail for using flowers. The Sun repeatedly misrepresents the 
facts, science, and the history about drugs and prohibition, and it 
is a disgusting insult to the intelligence of your readers. For shame.
