Hardly a day goes by without a mention of the pot legalization issue
in the Letters section, whether it be pro or con or whatever.

The letters against the medical marijuana amendment are indeed the
most entertaining, due to the fact that most make it out that the
users are all going to turn into zombies or werewolves, or some other
sort of undesirable misfits who will be out and about mindlessly
causing mayhem and havoc upon the general populace.

What these anti-pot people are missing is the fact that the people in
need of chronic pain relief are already taking pain meds that are far
more likely to cause impairment as far as driving, operating
machinery, etc.

If the truth be known, most of the "users" will probably be sitting
back in an easy chair watching an old movie, or listening to music,
while having a munchies attack and hopefully enjoying a short period
of time pain free!
