Obviously David Barret knows little about the consumption of cannabis.
If his goal is (as it seems from his Oct. 12 letter, "Fruity cigars
help fuel city's drug woes") to eliminate the means available for
smoking pot, he better ban carrots, apples, soda in cans, cigarettes
(yep, we can empty the tobacco out of those, too), aluminum foil,
brass automotive fittings, wine bottles, film canisters and aquarium
pump tubing.

Of course, then the darn potheads will just cook with their herb. So,
Barrett should also seek to ban brownie mix, Tollhouse Cookie
ingredients and stuffing mix.

Barrett will be a busy man, because the means for the consumption of
cannabis are everywhere. Creative minds and idle hands are the pot
smoker's workshop.
