Note: Parenthetical retort by the Sun editor; headline by newshawk


Your response to Gerald M. Sutliff's Aug. 10 letter misleads the public 
into thinking Linda Williamson, ("Why I'm not high on legalizing pot," 
Aug. 5) is compassionate. You commented: "Linda's in favour of 
marijuana being available medically. She's opposed to it being 
legalized." What? The bitter truth is she still wants marijuana 
prohibition laws -- laws that destroy families by keeping prisons 
filled with those who have done nothing but enjoy an alternate to the 
addictive drug -- alcohol.  

(So what's next then? Legalize crack, heroin, LSD?)
