To the editor,

I strongly disagree with The Daily Telegram's editorial which 
acknowledged legalizing cannabis (marijuana) would be the right thing 
to do but then said not to do it because it was against federal law 
and couldn't work. ("Our View: Petition to legalize marijuana in 
state won't solve problem," Jan. 15)

Alcohol prohibition's example indicates the best route is for states 
to lead the way. Millions of citizens are tired of waiting on 
Congress or the federal government to do what's right. Michigan 
residents have the support of citizens all across North America to 
RE-legalize the extremely popular, God-given plant. The Daily 
Telegram should be fully supportive in ending one of America's worst 
policy failures in history.

Ending cannabis prohibition and extermination is one of the most 
important issues of our time.
