Editor: Jackie Heninger is misinformed (letter: "Don't legalize 
marijuana," Feb. 10). According to science, cannabis (marijuana) does 
not kill brain cells. The murders at the Mexican/American border are 
not due to cannabis but rather cannabis prohibition, the same way the 
original prohibition with alcohol caused high murder rates, which 
diminished for 10 years after its repeal.

Cannabis does not damage lungs more than cigarettes or cause cancer.
In over 5,000 years of documented use, there still is not one single
dead body to show cannabis has ever caused cancer while cigarettes
kill over 1,000 Americans daily. Cannabis prohibition and
extermination is luciferous and based on lies, half-truths and
propaganda. Heninger is simply parroting prohibitionist government
"Reefer Madness" lies.

And speaking of hell, that may be where people go who support caging
responsible humans for using what God says is good on literally the
very first page of the Bible.
