Letter: Legalize the weed!

William Rembis writes:
Legalize weed already! This is a no-brainer. Look at what other states such as Colorado are doing. Number one, decriminalize it. Free up valuable space in the jails. Have law enforcement work on more pressing "real" crimes; violent crimes and theft for example. Number two; Allow the regulated and TAXED sale of marijuana for medicinal AND recreational use. This generates revenue for the state obviously, but also takes some of the control of the business side from cartels and street dealers and puts it in the hands of regulated brick and mortar dispensaries which are monitored by the state. It works in about 2 dozen other states and the sky has not fallen.

It's time to abandon the antiquated viewpoint (among others) that marijuana is a horrible drug when it isn't. No one has ever overdosed on weed. That's a fact. To classify weed as a "harmful drug" akin to addictive and overdose inducing drugs such as heroin, cocaine or meth is completely false.
