POT IS not almost decriminalized. (Letters, May 31) That's like almost
pregnant and almost only counts in horseshoes and cannon shots.
Statements like that make people think there is no problem and keep a
valuable medicine out of the hands of the ill. It seems your comments
are meant to incite a response to further demonstrate your lack of
compassion and ignorance on this matter. Do a little research, instead
of spouting off your line of drivel. You betray trust placed in the
press to present the facts to the people.

(We feel great compassion for sick people; we just don't think pot
should be legalized outright.)
