Re Erika Kubassek's Sept. 17 letter Pot smokers become zombies. Who the 
heck is Erika Kubassek, and when did she do any in-depth studies which 
might possibly make her some sort of authority on the subject of marijuana 
use? The only claim she makes which is reasonable is that driving under the 
influence of drugs - marijuana, or otherwise - is hazardous to those doing 
so, and others on the road.

I would be interested in seeing her defend her claims that marijuana "opens 
their soul to evil influences" (referring to users who "later become 
out-of-control zombies of no benefit to anyone").

Generally, if you are going to make ridiculous blanket statements on a 
subject you obviously have no knowledge of, you at least come up with some 
cheesy statistics as some sort of evidence.

By the way Erika, those "geriatric senators" happened to have spent the 
last two years researching and preparing a comprehensive report, as opposed 
to yourself who probably spent less than two minutes formulating this 
unfounded rant.
