The Sept. 5 editorial Smoke clouds reason flippantly suggests that the 
Canadian Senate's recommendation to legalize responsible cannabis use is 

A simple examination of the facts will prove that the Senate's report is, 
in fact, right on target.

The criminalization of cannabis has filled jails with otherwise law-abiding 
citizens, inspired government disdain among youth and made organized crime 
extremely rich.

The Senate deserves nothing but praise for suggesting such a wise and 
pragmatic policy reform.

The author of this editorial appears to have had his head in the sand for 
the past 30 years.

Current policies are simply not working.
