The reason for this letter is to ask people to risk getting arrested to
protest laws that restrict the free use of marijuana. There are many
reasons to do so, the most important being that using marijuana is not
wrong and the laws restricting its use are nothing more than an attempt to
control the governed. This is not a conflict created out of desire for
cheaper 'dope', but a rallying cry of a poor, unhealthy man who has
imagined a world with two possible futures; one where oppression is
accepted and one where it is not.
