Re "When pot moves next door" (Maryam Shah, March 24): How does one
deal with the problem of marijuana grow-ops that wreak havoc on
neighbourhoods? Seems fairly simple: Legalize marijuana. I do not
recall a massive illegal distillery problem since prohibition of
alcohol ended. I expect there to be the same result if marijuana
prohibition ended. Once again, we have a government-created problem
that needs more government to solve the problem it created in the
first place with its inane policies.
