Re: The letter "Don't Legalize Everything" (A-J, 9-15).

I really don't understand the letter writer's claim on why some drugs should
not be legalized. There are some legal drugs out there that cause more harm,
in my opinion, than some of the drugs that are illegal.

So he is absolutely correct on stating that not all things should be legal,
but maybe we should rethink some of the things that aren't compared to some
substances that are.

I also don't see how any of this has to do with Adam and Eve? Those choices
were made because God specifically said not to do something. Now, we are
given free will, but we pretty much know the difference between what is
wrong and right.

From my point of view, using the Bible to look done on certain actions is
wrong. I think you should look at what is going on around you today, and
research things without a biased point of view. If you never question what
you know, you will never figure things out on your own. Put down your Bible
for just a little while and read a book that deals with the issues of today.
