Regarding the letter, "This law will cost us, not benefit us": I 
think the writer is a man running in fear from something he doesn't 
know much about. Almost every statement he made are ones that have 
been planted in our minds by the political realm who want to control 
the product to line their greedy pockets. The word marijuana or pot 
is used to make us think it is something terrible. The item he is 
talking about is really a free growing herb called Cannabis. I would 
only suggest to the writer that he go online and read everything 
about cannabis. It is even mentioned as something "good" in the Bible 
(see Isaiah 18 4-5).

As for Jim Tobler's letter, "Opt out of robber baron economy," run on 
the same day as the pot letter, I must say that if my father was 
alive he would look him up and give him one big hug and a pat on the 
back for "waking up." Most times we are just sheep and blindly follow 
or eat what is fed to us. If every citizen looked into what our 
leaders do to us ... well, you know. Good thoughts, Jim.
