This is in response to the letter "An exclusionary practice" by Patricia Soderholm, printed Dec. 26.
There have been problems in every one of the 15 states that have legalized medical cannabis (marijuana) for sick citizens, mostly because of government red tape. The best way to eliminate all that red tape is to completely legalize cannabis.
Legalizing the relatively safe, extremely popular, God-given plant cannabis for all responsible adults would mean citizens who wish to use the plant for medical purposes would not need to navigate government requirements to pay extortion money to government for protection from police.
It’s obviously time to legalize cannabis and regulate it, like alcohol, because it is here for the duration of time.
