Dear Editor,

Ganja is illegal, so the police must stop those who peddle and smoke 
it, especially in full view of the public - at least for now, until 
and if it is made legal.

This open disregard for the law helps to confuse our children. It 
tells them that an illegal act can be flaunted and accepted publicly. 
Commissioner, get tough, please. It may look simple but it will go a 
far way in changing disrespectful attitudes towards law and order.

I am one of those from the old school who have no doubt that ganja is 
a harmful, behaviour-changing substance, even if the smokers say they 
feel "irie". To what end?
