To the editor: I write regarding Police Trying Hard To Control "Exploding"
Global Drug Trade (The Daily News, Oct. 15). A worldwide increase in the
cultivation and consumption of cannabis is a good thing that should be
applauded by world leaders, not condemned. Unlike alcohol, tobacco, heroin,
or cocaine, marijuana is non-toxic and has no overdose potential. It is one
of the safest herbs known to man, and if more people are using marijuana,
then less of them are using one of these other, dangerously toxic drugs.
Choosing to use marijuana instead of these other drugs is a wise and
responsible decision public-health officials should support.
