Re: “Draw the line between legal pot and bogus medicine” (editorial, 1-22).

Horrible article! I do support the legalization and feel it does provide many better benefits as opposed to alcohol, cigarettes and prescription drugs. Who has complained yet?

I also feel with recreational use, it’s none of anyone’s business of what a person does and if this is what the country wants, it’s our choice. There has yet to be one thing proven 100 percent by well-educated people about marijuana being harmful at all.

I feel your article was nothing but one-sided opinions with no facts to back it up. I hope you realize our state medical marijuana system is next to impossible to get into unless you literally have AIDS, cancer or only months left to live.

If you’re going to write something that many, many, many people read, you should include truth, facts and evidence to things you’re claiming on. You’re a newspaper, you’re supposed to be one of the most well investigated, truthful and published things a person can read.
