Re: Mental illness another reason to ban marijuana, Feedback, the 
Observer, April 8.

The New Zealand study Chris Kempling refers to appears to be in 2004 
under Journal - Professional and Other Non-Research Articles, written 
by Fergusson, D.M. and consists of three articles - letter to the 
Editor, a reply, and something possibly from Addiction magazine 99, 
page 505-515.

If your readers are going to quote studies, they should also quote 
the proper references, otherwise the words are nothing but rhetoric and rumour.

I would suggest Chris Kempling read the entire Supreme Court of 
Canada decision at R. v. Malmo- Levine; R. v. Caine, [2003] 3 S.C.R. 
571, 2003 SCC 74 where at least the evidence put forth was subjected 
to scrutiny.
