To the Editor,

Re: Legalizing pot isn't appropriate answer, Letters, Jan. 7.

Raegan Eisfeld believes the current marijuana laws are not working.
She's correct. She does not believe in decriminalization or
legalization though, and gives no other options.

Criminals are going to be around no matter what the consequences,
that's not the point.

The point is that young people are being saddled with a criminal
record for a harmless drug.

Comparing B&Es to possession of marijuana is a ridiculous example.
There is no victim to someone smoking marijuana in their own home.

As far as a marijuana skin patch goes, there are thousands of
compounds in marijuana, that are difficult to reproduce artificially.

As far as inhaling marijuana goes, there has never been a case of
cancer attributed to smoking marijuana. Oppositely, there is plenty
of evidence that marijuana shrinks cancerous tumors.
