I must say that I nearly spilled my double shot espresso coffee the morning 
of July 19 when I read the column in the TC by John Robson advocating the 
decriminalization of marijuana.

My wife was similarly shocked and it took her an extra cigarette just to 
settle her nerves.

I was so incensed I decided to go to the pharmacy and pick up Ritalin for 
the kids and Prozac for the wife and me.

Then I went down to the bar to discuss this issue with my buddies over a 
few beers.

You can expect a letter-writing campaign from all of us making it clear to 
our elected officials that there's no place for drugs in our society.
