* Re "Clarify Medical Marijuana Law," the Nov. 29 editorial: Study
after study has shown that marijuana is not "dangerous." It is one of
the more benign substances known to science, certainly more so than
alcohol and tobacco. That alcohol and tobacco are legal while
marijuana is not is perpetuated solely out of prejudice and an
unwillingness to admit that the government and media have been wrong
for so many decades.
