Dear Editor,

Frank G. Sterle Jr.'s erroneous conclusions on perceived harms of
cannabis [Grass not harmless at all, Nov. 17 Letters,] have been debunked by recent studies.

Less than a week ago, the American Medical Association reversed it's
72-year position on Cannabis, recommending it be recognized for
particular medicinal applications, and downgraded from Schedule 1.

There are over a thousand studies on the medicinal properties of
Cannabis. It's the most studied plant on Earth, the most patented
plant on Earth, the most nutritious plant on Earth, and the most
industrially versatile plant on Earth.

Cannabis is also the plant with the most enemies in the corporate
banking sector, as any factual account of U.S. prohibition attests.

All prohibition is a hoax, a politically expedient social control
mechanism. Mr. Sterle is arguing for supremacy of the plutocracy,
ultimately. I take the side of the people.

Bruce Codere,

Fox Creek, Alberta
