I'm writing about the thoughtful column by Paul Danish, "Who killed
Proposition 19?" (Danish Plan, Nov. 18). Probably parents and
grandparents mistakenly think that there is a gateway between cannabis
use and hard drugs. There is not. The possible gateway is caused by
cannabis prohibition.

Have the readers ever been offered a free bottle of whiskey, rum or
vodka when legally buying beer or wine? Probably not. Have their adult
children ever been offered a free sample of meth or cocaine when
illegally buying cannabis? Probably yes.

In a regulated and controlled market this would not happen.
Re-legalize cannabis, and we close the gateway.

For the sake of your children and grandchildren -- re-legalize
