He was so right pointing out why the KPD and the prosecuting attorneys are trying to stop the decriminalizing of marijuana. It amazes me all the time and money that is wasted going after and prosecuting people for possessing or using marijuana, especially when we have such a budget deficit that we have school furloughs because we can't afford to pay our teachers. I urge everyone to voice their support for decriminalizing marijuana; together we can make a difference. Andy Gorsline Kapa'a - --- MAP posted-by: Richard R Smith Jr.
