Marijuana prohibition and the folly of subjugation [Letter]

December 21, 2013

Gregory Kline answers his own retorts in "The folly of marijuana legalization" (Dec. 13). He thinks it is the business of government to control what citizens do behind closed doors. We better prohibit private wine, beer and spirit consumption in our homes; turn the clock back and reinstate anti-gay laws; and send several of our recent presidents to prison for smoking pot. What century does Mr. Kline live in?

He equates prohibition laws with laws against murder. Does he really not see the difference between so-called offenses which have no victim and actually killing another person? Unbelievable!
