Criminal 'Welfare'

Herald columnist Howie Carr's opposition to the
repeal of marijuana prohibition is, in effect,
support for maintaining =93welfare=94 to criminals
such as James =93Whitey=94 Bulger (Jan. 26). Crime
Inc is not the only interest group that benefits
from the pot prohibition, just the most visible.
These welfare benefits cost taxpayers more than
the =93stoners=94 receive should they ever get on the dole.
