Thank you for the story, "It's time to stop calling the pot black," Nov. 9. 
At the very least, cannabis should be legalized. It defies integrity and 
rationality to cage humans for using cannabis. And to cage sick citizens 
using cannabis for relief of pain is vile, morbid and spiteful, for a 
civilization in 2001. The people that vote to cage a human for using 
cannabis are the problem in society, not cannabis. Canada must use all 
opportunity to separate itself from the failed war on drugs, in order to 
help aid Earth's knowledge of the benefits of cannabis. As God gave us 
cannabis, THC receptor sites in our brains are given also. If God gave us 
cannabis, who gives us cannabis prohibition?
