Re Mark Wilson's July 28 letter, "Florida does not need 2,000 'pot 
shops' ": It seems that the only devastating effects should Amendment 
2, legalizing medical marijuana, will be that hundreds of thousands 
of suffering Floridians will get relief from cheap natural plants 
that won't cost $50 a pill and come with a list of hazardous side 
effects a mile long.

I'm sure the Florida Chamber of Commerce's mission of promoting good 
private-sector jobs supports the sale of tobacco, which kills half a 
million Americans annually just as sure as the sun rises and sets. 
How's that for devastating?

And I'm guessing the chamber's position is with the frackers in 
adding more carcinogens to our drinking water because it creates 
jobs. Forget people's health and safety. Millions will suffer 
illness, and many will get cancer.
