Letter to the Editor
It’s good to see the Obama administration deciding to not go after medical marijuana the way the Bush administration did. it gives me “high hopes” that some day the ridiculous prohibition on marijuana will go away. This is a drug that if fully legal would be a benefit to society. I believe that it would replace alcohol, which is a much more dangerous drug, as a choice for those who want a little buzz but doesn’t want to wreck their cars or become violent and drug dependent. This is a step in the right direction and America is better off for it. Thank you President Obama.
