Writing as a retired detective, I know the damage and danger of 
marijuana use ("Time for a pot caucus? Dec. 8). It is no play toy. 
And I believe it should be given the same rules and respect as beer.

The Boston Herald editorial argues that the current system should 
continue. That means the cartels produce and transport marijuana and 
thousands of teens sell it to their friends and others. What are the 
advantages and benefits of marijuana prohibition? The harm is that 
kids may be shot or even killed selling a green plant.
