In last week's story "Pot 2.0," why are the only sources cited law 
enforcement officials who have a vested interest in keeping marijuana 
prohibition going?

No, marijuana is not a narcotic. No, butane labs are not exploding 
all over the state like Fourth of July fireworks.

The labs are a problem, yes, but only because of prohibition. We 
don't hear about homemade alcohol distilleries exploding anymore 
because people can buy booze at grocery stores and gas stations.

The story also implied that the high THC content in honey oil is 
somehow dangerous. If so, why is synthetic Marinol, a product of Big 
Pharma, legal with a THC content of 100 percent?

Hopefully, The Acorn will endorse the legalization initiative on the 
2016 ballot so marijuana is regulated and taxed and consumers will no 
longer be subsidizing drug cartels.

In recorded history, marijuana has not killed anybody, unless they 
blow themselves up making butane honey oil.
