Leave The Pot Smokers Alone

Letters, Honolulu Star-Bulletin, US

There were two opposing letters in your May 27 issue, one titled "Legalize marijuana and bring it under regulation" and the other headlined "Marijuana is a threat to our children." After reading many official scientific reports of the health effects of smoking cannabis, I must agree with the first letter.

This question is best left in the hands of the medical profession, not the courts. Arresting someone for a so-called crime that hurts nobody else is unlikely to have a positive effect on the individual or society. Let's put an end to this sad war on cannabis users and introduce a little compassion, common sense and good advice into the equation.
