1 CN BC: LTE: Legalization Not The AnswerFri, 09 Apr 2010

Dear Editor,

Russell Barth's argument to legalize and regulate drugs [Drugs: Legalizing would stop gangs, March 26 Letters, www.langleyadvance.com] is one that many should find offensive. He believes that the police do not want to legalize drugs because that would result in budget cuts and layoffs.

Unlike Barth, I do not believe all police men and women are trying to trick the public into giving them money by making us believe that "crime is a bigger issue than it is." For the most part, I know the police are out there doing the best they can to protect the citizens of our cities, and accusing our brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, aunts, and uncles of perceiving crime as a threat in order to keep their jobs and acquire more money for "powers of intrusion and coercion" is insulting.
