I'm writing about: "Sheriff Presents 'Plan B' For Jail" (The Morning 
News, March 8, 2007).

I have a common-sense, easy and inexpensive solution to your jail 
overcrowding situation.

Reserve your jail space for only those who intentionally harm others 
against their will. Not gardeners. Not people who use, produce or 
sell to willing buyers "unapproved" products.

Re-legalize the now illegal unapproved products so they can be sold 
in legal, licensed, regulated and taxed business establishments. Just 
like we do for the unapproved products tobacco and alcohol.

What message would this send to our children? The same message we 
send to children by allowing alcohol and tobacco to sold in legal and 
licensed business establishments.

A free country's government cannot protect its adult citizens from 
themselves. A free country's government has no right attempting to do so.
