I am so glad that Mr. Mayfield is your MP and not mine.  Surely anyone
who can so misrepresent the revision of penalties for cannabis
possession as somehow making it legal deserves nothing but scorn.  Mr.
Mayfield, what makes you say, as quoted in the article in the June 15
edition of The Tribune, "It's legal to have it, but not to grow it or
sell it?"

If pot is going to be legal, why is there still a penalty for
possession?  Of course, if you admit that the changes proposed are
merely minor tweaking, as they are, you must get down off your soapbox
and lose out on the opportunity to get your name in the paper--and to
look like a total ass in the process.
