Re "Treatment measure blasted," June 3: Of course our drug czar would
blast the measure. He is faithfully executing orders to represent the
establishment voice here, the status quo of our treasonous war on
cannabis consumers. Any threat to a prison-industrial complex, which
flourishes like a slime mold, must be opposed -- Constitution be damned.

After our rights are restored, the general and his ilk will stand in
the dock for their heinous drug war crimes. There will be retribution,
there will be reparations paid to victims. My rights to grow what I
want in my garden, smoke what I want in my pipe are mine alone, not
that of the police state that has squelched our liberty. Perhaps
codification of this notion as an amendment to the Constitution would
forestall the coming revolts. Perhaps not.
