Thank you to John Gleeson for writing such a sensible and honest 
article (Drug profits and the big picture, Point of View, Feb. 18). 
It was so refreshing to read a drug-prohibition news piece backed up 
with science, facts and logic instead of quotes from police about 
their "beliefs" and (questionable) statistics.

When discussing public health and safety issues, it's absolutely 
essential to be unbiased, unemotional and factual -- especially by 
referring to reputable and independent studies, such as the Fraser 
Institute report, which Gleeson mentioned.

This is the kind of newspaper article we should see more often. Kudos 
to the Winnipeg Sun for running this important information.
