I was surprised and very pleased to see and read [Sheila Suess Kennedy's] column in the [Aug. 29] IBJ regarding marijuana. This is one of your articles I agreed with 100 percent.
You were not only on the money, but your research helped to verify the truth, and the many benefits, in all aspects of the issue. Since the paranoid years of the Nixon and J. Edgar Hoover administrations, it’s time to get this subject up front, correct it and dispel the stereotyping that most all government agencies, politicians and media have presented since the 1970s, in their own fear of showing any support of an illegal drug.
Thanks, and please keep it up!
