To the editor:

David Clear makes an interesting argument about marijuana production 
and retail sales. It seems our city council was duped after 
Prohibition was repealed, for at some point, the council must have 
approved sale of alcohol in our town.

Alcohol is sold here and produced here, but there is no movement to 
change that. Our children are subjected to sales of alcohol daily. 
Alcohol is not just consumed here, but the use is glorified by events 
such as annual beerfests, most recently held at a city park.

Perhaps alcohol should receive the same treatment as marijuana.

Times, attitudes, morals and behaviors change. We study history to 
help understand.
