Re "Is Obama in control?" (Editorial, Dec. 22):

In Ken Burns' outstanding PBS documentary Prohibition, it was revealed
that alcohol prohibition corrupted all levels of our government-all
the way up to the Warren G. Harding White House. The alcohol cartels
had hundreds of politicians on their payroll.

Is it unreasonable to suspect that the drug cartels of today are
following in the footsteps of the alcohol cartels? It's obvious that
medical marijuana dispensaries were making a major dent in the income
of the drug cartels.

Would a $10 million bribe motivate Obama to change his policy
regarding medical marijuana? We will never know. But I certainly suspect so.
