In response to 'False assumptions' (Your Views, July 7): The users of
cannabis claim not a single person has died from using it. This may be
true in regard to overdoses, but it is damaging to one's lungs and
leads to other drug abuse, including pills, cocaine and stronger
synthetic marijuana. These stronger forms of marijuana lead to
hallucinations and people harming themselves or others.

Marijuana is not conducive to people driving, operating heavy
equipment or doing any other job where the public is concerned.

Drugs are poisoning our younger people, and marijuana is the first
phase and should remain illegal.
