Re "Feinstein adamantly against pot," Jan. 14

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) reminds me of the dowager at Downton 
who was dragged into the 20th century kicking and screaming over the 
newfangled invention of a telephone because she didn't understand it.

Feinstein needs to jump into the 21st century to more accurately come 
to grips with all that we now know about marijuana consumption.

If she really is concerned about the dangers of ingesting foreign 
substances, perhaps she should first explain her silence about the 
thousands of deaths each year from properly prescribed prescription drugs.
