Athens Banner-Herald columnist Ed Tant scored an arrow-splitting
bull's-eye in his Sunday column against marijuana prohibition.

Another reason to stop caging humans for using cannabis that doesn't
get mentioned is that it's biblically correct. God created the plant,
saying it's good, on literally the very first page of the Bible.

In over 5,000 years of documented use, there is little, if any,
evidence that marijuana has killed a single person. That's safety on a
biblical scale, particularly compared to cigarettes or alcohol.
Cigarettes kill more than 1,000 Americans daily, and alcohol can kill
a person in a single instance of overuse.

A sane or moral argument to continue punishing humans for using
cannabis doesn't exist. Truthfully,
