RE: Colin Mayes' column in the March 28 Eagle Valley News.
Colin Mayes has conveniently avoided the main issue in his opposition
to legalizing marijuana. Marijuana is a cash crop. Why else would all
these illegal grow-ops go to such expensive, highly-technical
procedures to maintain their operations?
Take away the huge profit margin and it would flop just like any other
business - legal or otherwise.
Remember back in history when prohibition was tried, and what a fiasco
that was? Now alcohol is legal yet abuse of it is every bit as
dangerous as any other drug. I presume Mayes is a total abstainer as I
saw no mention of alcohol in his account.
