Regarding "Group's photos aim to alter pot's slacker reputation," 
(April 22): I am pleased that The Oregonian/OregonLive published 
photos of marijuana users without resorting to stereotypes. It is in 
society's best interest to present marijuana in a manner so as not to 
discriminate against users, since many are hardworking members of our 
society. Just like marijuana, alcohol has an unfavorable side. This 
doesn't mean that every alcohol consumer is an alcoholic. Although I 
encourage a sober lifestyle, as an adult, one has the right to spend 
recreational time in their own manner.
