As a Coloradoan who helped re-legalize cannabis (marijuana) in 
Colorado, it's strange to read California government continues 
struggling with medical cannabis issues ("What Deadline?" Feb. 4), 
when completely re-legalizing the plant looms on Election Day. If 
state government officials want to shape the inevitable they must do 
it now because citizens are not waiting on government to get the job done.

Responsible adults should be allowed to grow and use the relatively 
safe, extremely popular God-given plant without risk of being caged 
or discriminated against. Cannabis should be available to citizens 
like beer, wine and whiskey.

A sane or moral argument to perpetuate cannabis prohibition another 
day doesn't exist.
