As a member of the Mendocino Cannabis Policy Council, I'd like to say 
how heartened I was to read "Clear-eyed view of legalization" 
(Editorial, March 30), that The Chronicle applauds Lt. Gov. Gavin 
Newsom's panel which will address the effects of legalization of 
cannabis in California in 2016.

As the editorial stated, we also hope they "get it right" and that 
this time, at last, they remember to include the rights and 
regulations necessary for the future of small speciality cannabis 
cultivators, specifically in the Emerald Triangle region. Much skill 
and hard work goes into crafting quality organic sun-grown cannabis, 
and so the source of this product should certainly be recognized and 
included in the discussion. I look forward to the public hearing in 
San Francisco in May.
