It is irresponsible to keep reporting on gang violence when at the 
same time you fail to comment on our silly marijuana laws.

It is clear a large part of gang profits and violence comes from 
sales of marijuana, a very popular smoke.

If the plant were legal, both gang violence and gang profits would 
immediately drop by a large percentage.

It is only fair to the public not to let the preachers and 
politicians confuse marijuana smokers with cocaine and heroin users.

Please remember the prohibition we had against alcohol, a much more 
serious drug.
