Re "Dear President Barack Obama" (Guest Comment, Oct. 13):

Kudos to publisher Jeff vonKaenel for his outstanding letter to 
President Obama. I'd like to share with the readers a short letter I 
wrote to President Obama:

Like millions of other voters, I voted for you in 2008, campaigned 
for you, and donated to your campaign for two basic reasons:

1. Candidate Obama said that the war on drugs was an utter failure.

2. Candidate Obama said he would not go after medical marijuana users 
or their caregivers.

Obviously, I was duped.

As a result I will vote for and campaign for your opponent in 2012.

One final question: Why do you want marijuana to remain completely 
unregulated, untaxed and controlled by criminal gangs?
