Jon Beydler’s op-ed (“Next step: complete legalization of marijuana”, Nov. 17) hit the bull’s eye.
It’s time to completely legalize marijuana. A sane or moral argument to continue cannabis prohibition and extermination doesn’t exist. Hopefully, when cannabis is finally legalized (and it will be legalized) the problems associated with Proposition 203 and medical use in general will be alleviated. The whole need for Proposition 203, allowing citizens to use the relatively safe, God-given plant for medical reasons, exists only because the plant is prohibited.
Legalizing cannabis will likely mean citizens who wish to use the super plant for medical purposes will not need to pay extortion money to government for protection from police.
