Letter: Marijuana

March 12, 2014 

Marijuana has been on sale in Colorado for two months now and I haven’t heard of one traffic incident. Could it be that Mothers Against Drunk Driving don’t know what they are talking about? I think so. In fact, I’ve known since 1970. There’s never been a connection and they’ve known that. Making marijuana illegal has always been about punishing people, not protecting, like these groups portray themselves. I would like to hear an apology from them for misleading the public all these years, along with an admission to their willful ignorance on the subject.
