Kathi Lipscomb states in a letter to the editor that she was in 
Amsterdam and while walking in the city, someone asked her why she 
was there when the best cannabis in the world is grown in California! 
Am I the only Californian who is ashamed of this fact? It is just 
wrong when we're admired for growing and promoting an illegal narcotic.

I spoke with some friends today and we agreed that there are 
legitimate, ill people in need of pain medications, but 95 percent of 
the users are not legitimate! Any one can get marijuana or a 
"script." If it were prescribed ONLY to proven, HONESTLY ill people, 
it would not be the gigantic statewide problem that it is. I believe 
that the people who write to you insisting that marijuana is just a 
harmless herb and wonderful end-all pain reliever ... are the very 
people who sit on their couch every night getting stoned.
