WHEN I read the account of heroin dealing at Toronto high schools in the 
Saturday Sun ("Smacked!", Sept. 21), I could not help but note that the 
suspects are accused of selling heroin, cocaine and marijuana. This 
confirms what the Senate recently stated, that those who sell cannabis also 
sell hard drugs, and that this is the path from cannabis to hard drugs. The 
senators correctly concluded that the only way to sever that path is to 
relegalize cannabis.

(By that logic, why not legalize coke and heroin too? See next letter)
