LETTER OF THE WEEK
POT DISASTER DIDN’T HAPPEN
It’s hardly surprising that growing numbers of Californians want to
legalize marijuana for adults.
When Proposition 215 passed in 1996, legalizing medical marijuana,
prohibition supporters issued dire warnings of increased crime, teen
drug use and traffic fatalities.
None of these things happened, and life has gone on as normal. With
Proposition 19, prohibition supporters are again crying wolf and
again being ignored – as they should be.
