Re: Tougher Laws Not The Answer, Our Opinions, C4

In his editorial Matthew Grant claimed marijuana proponents want to 
experiment with society, when in actuality it is the prohibition itself 
that is a deviation from what was the norm.

He claims we might suffer diminished immune deficiencies, reduced lung 
capacity and perhaps even a bout with cancer if we puff the herb. Show me 
the bodies.

His unwillingness to fully examine the evidence on this matter, his ability 
to embrace a distant, potential threat and to use that precognition as 
reason sufficient to continue the arrest of our fellow citizens for putting 
themselves at risk, (in his opinion,) makes it glaringly obvious he "can't 
handle the truth."
