‘Our View’ is your view, not my view

Re: Our View: Time to Rethink War On Drugs, Nov. 29 Capital News.

Who writes this drivel? If it was written to get a reaction, you certainly succeeded from this individual.

If written because it really is, “Our View,” it is obvious to me that those responsible have ingested too much of the product they believe should be legalized and that alone should be sufficient evidence to negate the argument that more revenue for government wins the day.

More money in the hands of government does not convince me that we should legalize cannabis.

Does today’s society really need another mind altering drug legalized, or do individuals need to step back, face their issues, and accept their responsibilities with a clear head?

What really bothers me about this “opinion” is the final paragraph. I do not agree with the column and I resent the fact that I am therefore labelled as making my living from organized crime, be that the private or public sector.
