Dear Editor,

Frank Sterle, Jr., claims to suffer permanent damage to his body and mind 
because of smoking pot [Letters to the Editor, June 24, Langley Advance 
News]. I see that one of the defects seems to be making up things and then 
fighting against them.

Despite Sterle's charges, no one has ever said that marijuana is harmless, 
neither to "impressionable" youth nor to such adults.

As every intoxicant, pot must be used with prudence. After all, not 
everybody who drinks Chianti and a Cognac digestive with dinner is likely 
to wind up on Skid Row with vomit on their pants. In the same manner, most 
pot smokers enjoy the weed without family-shattering and budget-busting 

Frank is just blowing propaganda.
