Prohibition of pot simply bad policy

To the Editor,

Re: Legalization debate all about the money, Letters, Jan. 24.

Clearly government subsidized cannabis (marijuana) prohibitionists and their unions have a significant financial interest in perpetuating one of North America’s worst policy failures in history.

However, as I investigate the people and groups which advocate re-legalizing the relatively safe, extremely popular God-given plant (see the first page of the Bible), I don’t see financial interests, but rather an interest in ending bad policy which has negatively affected millions of citizens.

One place this can be verified is the Media Awareness Project’s website archive, including letters.

Everyday adult citizens just want to stop discrimination for using a beneficial plant which is clearly safer than alcohol, by the way.
