I strongly support veteran Leroy Stubblefield's right to use the plant 
cannabis (marijuana) for health reasons ("Search and Seizure," ODE, Nov. 8).

It defies integrity and rationality to cage humans for using the plant 
cannabis, and to cage sick citizens using cannabis for relief of pain is 
vile, immoral and spiteful for a civilization in the year 2002. At the very 
minimum, North America must re-legalize cannabis, especially when you 
consider the worst side effects of cannabis are police inflicted.

Do cannabis prohibitionists even comprehend that they're admitting a desire 
to cage humans for using a plant? Instead of caging humans for using 
cannabis, thank God for cannabis. Accept cannabis (known as kaneh bosm, 
before the King James Version) for what it is, as described on literally 
the very first page of the Bible (Genesis 1:11-12 and 29-30).
