In the Jan. 4 editorial cartoon, Shane Johnson effectively and humorously showed the truth and reality of the perpetuated fear and hardheadedness of Indiana leadership, including Gov. Holcomb, over the legalization of marijuana. Well done! Also, my hat is off to IBJ for publishing such a timely subject, with the lame excuses and rationalizations recently stated by Holcomb. Between Holcomb, [House Speaker Brian] Bosma and [Indiana Chamber of Commerce President and CEO] Kevin Brinegar, our state leaders seem to be afraid of their own shadows, except when it comes to expanded sports gambling, of course. It’s too bad the human constituents of Indiana remain deprived of the benefits of THC.
