EDITOR: Steven Lusk is a little off the mark when he compares murder, rape 
and robbery to legalizing drugs, which actually should have been marijuana 
but it sounds so much better to ginger up the actual subject.

Murder, rape, and robbery always have a victim. Using marijuana is a 
victimless crime like gambling.

Mr. Lusk is correct that by legalizing marijuana "we remove that crime from 
the books and we can focus on other societal problems." I thank him for 
pointing this out.

Marijuana is just a plant given to us by God, and he saw that it was good 
(Gen 1:12).
