President Trump is ill advised to expend resources to shutdown state
legal marijuana businesses ("€œPot plans moving forward despite
toughtalk from Trump,"€ Feb. 27).

As Jacob Sullum points out in his column: "€œAccording to a recent
Quinnipiac University survey, 59 percent of Americans think
marijuana  ˜should be made legal in the United States,"€™ while 71
percent "€˜oppose the government enforcing federal laws against
marijuana in states that have already legalized medical or recreational
marijuana."€™ Among Republicans, only 35 percent favored legalization,
but 55 percent opposed federal interference with it."€
