I wish Paul Greenberg would dismount from his moral high horse and
give marijuana a rest.

Instead of listening to his Guy Lombardo and Lawrence Welk records
tonight, perhaps Paul should watch the 1930s propaganda classic,
Reefer Madness. My favorite scene that I remember is the guy smoking a
joint and then jumping out of an upstairs window.

Gateway drug? Sure, and those two beers at the fraternity house party
turn you into an alcoholic. I believe decriminalization of the
possession and use of small amounts of marijuana is both smart and
inevitable. Too many law enforcement resources are wasted on chasing

I think the biggest drug problem in our country today, by far, is the
abuse of prescription drugs (like Oxycodone, methadone, Xanax, etc.).
Paul should use his bully pen on those drugs. And when he's done, he
can go after tobacco, the biggest killer of them all.
