In response to the article on the NORML Legalization March, I have to
say, "Good for you!" I found your article to be well done, though
maybe a little short.

So often in newspapers, articles concerning pot smokers exercising
their rights are used as a chance to debase the organization,
portraying their members as a gathering of weak-minded ne'er-do-wells.
Instead, Ms. [Robyn] Sidersky put a very human face on the writing of
her article and included some informative quotes.

Having been a member of  and attended conferences in
Washington, D.C. and San Francisco, I can say that this group is not
just a group of potheads out to have a good time.

 has lobbied in this state and nationally for your right not
to be persecuted for using a harmless plant and has made waves in this
school by educating students on their rights and winning the spirit
float homecoming competition a couple times.

So again, good for you Central Florida Future for letting these
reasonable, active, thoughtful individuals get their say, because they
deserve it. In addition, thanks to yourselves and Mr. [Greg] Territo
for putting that classic picture on the front page. Cheney never
looked better!
