The Ukiah Daily Journal's Editorial (Time to amend Prop. 215, Jan. 
16, 2012) fails to acknowledge that the God-given plant cannabis 
(marijuana) is extremely popular and many citizens who voted for 
Prop. 215 did so with the realization that it was the closest thing 
to re-legalizing the plant at the time. Since Prop. 215 was voted in, 
support for legalizing cannabis has grown immensely. Cannabis will be 
RE-legalized and millions of citizens across all of North America are 
tired of waiting. Voters in California and Colorado will likely get 
another golden opportunity in November 2012 and other states are 
likely to join the race.

Amending Prop. 215 amounts to going backwards while citizens wish to 
move forward. Perhaps the Daily Journal will consider editorializing 
to legalize and regulate cannabis like beer or wine.
