Dear Editor:

I've enjoyed reading progressive articles about cannabis (kaneh 
bosm/marijuana) lately in The Aspen Times but can't get Shelley 
Evans' letter ("Facts about Amendment 44," Sept. 30) out of my mind. 
Evans is out of touch with reality on every government-parroted 
reefer-madness point. Example: Marijuana cannot contain more 
cancer-causing chemicals than tobacco smoke, since there isn't one 
dead body to prove it in over 5,000 years of documented use. Tobacco 
kills over 1,000 Americans daily.

One reason to support Amendment 44, re-legalizing the plant cannabis
(kaneh bosm/marijuana) that doesn't get mentioned is because it is
biblically correct since Christ God our Father indicates he created
all the seed-bearing plants saying they are all good, on literally the
very first page (see Genesis 1:11-12 and 29-30). The only biblical
restriction placed on cannabis is that it be accepted with
thankfulness (see 1 Timothy 4:1-5).

It's time to stop caging humans for using what God says is
