It’s hard to believe that in this day and age people are still suffering from a “Reefer Madness” mentality concerning marijuana. One letter writer is so ignorant as to say marijuana is a gateway drug leading to more dangerous drugs, when that fallacy was disproved many years ago. Maybe the guy owns a bar and he's afraid the more people smoke, the less they drink. Who knows?

I just don’t understand what people are afraid of. It’s a little pathetic that people are up in arms about marijuana, but alcohol is OK. Educate yourselves, people, there’s a larger problem with alcohol, not marijuana.

If you don't like marijuana, don’t smoke it, but don’t let your narrow minds dictate what everyone else should do or not do.
