If unsure, be sure to get the facts

In regard to the letter, “Marijuana: Complete lunacy to legalize drug”: I must refute, out of frustration toward ignorance. Though I feel sympathy for the writer’s losses from those ruined or killed by alcohol and drugs, I beg him to realize that no records show that marijuana was the cause of any death. Whether someone moves on to harder drugs or not is up to them and their individual addictive personality, as with drinking alcohol.

I don’t write to cause animosity or further hatred toward those for the use of recreational marijuana, but I write because I feel those who are undecided about the issue are getting false information. We cannot control others, we cannot change others. Live and let live.
