Jim Lerdahl ("Sell seized marijuana," letter, Nov. 12) suggested the 
state sell seized marijuana to Colorado. I've got a better idea: The 
state ought to legalize marijuana like Colorado and Washington did, 
end the pointless War on Drugs and release all those first-time drug users.

Because of the War on Drugs, the United States (aka Land of the Free) 
has the highest prison population. We lock up more people than any 
other country in the world. That is not something to be proud of.

Alcohol is more dangerous than marijuana. We often hear stories of 
someone getting drunk and hitting somebody, but not of anyone smoking 
marijuana and hitting somebody.
