Comment: Parenthetical remark by the Sun editor; headline by newshawk


Tobacco users at one time faced the death penalty. The
question is, should we punish, with all the force of the law, people
with personal bad habits? Who decides what you get to eat, drink or
smoke? Evidence is accumulating that pot smoking may slow the growth
of cancer. Should we then make pot mandatory?

(OK -- that's it. No more letters from the organized pro-pot lobby
unless there's an original point to make.)
