["Marijuana legalization, regulation move forward," Opinion, Dec. 26.] Ninety percent of American gun violence would end overnight once the profit motive for drug gangs to kill were eliminated. Sure, freedom has a way of taking the irresponsible by the throat, so many would suffer from legalized drugs, but far fewer than suffer right now due to the violence. Drug legalization is not surrender in the war on drugs. It is the only possible victory. - - William Slusher, Okanogan MAP posted-by: Jo-D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
