One cannot help but be suspect with respect to police opposition to the 
legalization of marijuana. It is obvious that the ever-increasing amounts 
of money and time spent on the drug "wars" only benefits organized crime 
while otherwise innocent citizens are harassed and prosecuted.

As a former chair of the Sudbury Addiction Workers' Council, I would urge 
all those interested, included the police, to carefully read the very well 
prepared and objective report by the Senate committee who have no vested 
interest in the issue.

It is time we put an end to the nonsense surrounding this subject and get 
on with more important business like making our highways safer with the 
help of our police services.
