Re. Darts & Bouquets in Nov. 5 Advocate:

Rick Zemanek says that we in Canada should follow the example of
Denver, Colo. because they have legalized possession of marijuana.
Wow. What an example. What will be next? Meth?

We have already losta battles when it comes to tobacco or alcohol. How
many millions of dollars are spent due to the crimes committed by
alcohol-fuelled criminals and how many dollars are spent on
tobacco-related physical problems?

So, why add more substances to the list?

If legalizing is equal to less crimes and less court times, then why
not legalize theft, burglary, rape? Our courts would havea less burden
and judges can go on longer holidays. We can cut the police force in
half and save money.
