My regards to the new NORML chapter ("New club seeks marijuana law reform," 
Sept. 29 Press-Citizen). There is a glitch in the system when humans are 
caged for using a plant. The original prohibition on a national scale was 
worse than the booze prohibition, and the sequel, now on an international 
scale, is worse.

For me, the root of this problem can biblically be traced back to the very 
first page of the Bible, through the eye of the spirit. The Holy Spirit of 
truth enables us to comprehend the conflict, which is between man's laws to 
cage a brother for using a plant and God's words indicating that all the 
green plants are good, in Genesis. 1:11-12 and 1:29-30.

In the year 2002, it is time to control the out-of-control prohibitionists 
in America. At the very minimum, that means re-legalizing can-nabis. As the 
new commandment is to love our brothers, re-legalizing cannabis would be a 
move in that direction.
