To the editor:


This letter is in response to Howard Fischer's article, "Arizona will ignore feds on pot OK".


Does the phrase "Of the people, for the people, and by the people" mean anything to elected officials anymore? Elected officials of state and city were elected to serve; and serve who: the people.


The pot issue was put on the ballot and "the people" passed it more than once.  Pressure from special interest groups, personal agenda and power corrupted officials in any capacity cannot be allowed to usurp the power of the vote.  The people have spoken.  Why is this even still an issue?

We have to stop electing social conservatives.




They seem to think that we, the people, don't have enough sense (or morals) to do the right thing. They need to get off their high horses and stop dictating to us. If you want to live your life according to Biblical standards, I'm OK with that. Just don't try to force me to do the same!!
