Dear Editor,

The above referenced article reported by Steve Mayer provided me with my
second big laugh of the day.  It left me grinning, shaking my head and
saying only in Bakersfield.  Having been born and raised there, I hold a
special place in my heart for my hometown (I graduated for EBHS in 1955).
However, whenever as I watch your politics my brain suffers from an
overload of disbelief.

Your reporter, Steve Mayer, should know better.  The real story is about
intolerance, no brain policies and a failed War on Drugs that actually
increases demand and brings in more drugs.
