Where is the anguish caused by the use or users of marijuana?

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

This letter is in response to Mr. Thomas R. Selling's letter on January 17th.
Mr. Thomas, what exact anguish are we suffering, and to what actions caused by the people using marijuana is this anguish created?

Please refresh my memory to any incident of violence, overdose, severe addiction, danger, or harmfulness of this naturally growing, unaltered plant. It seems to me that we need to focus on the dangerous issues we are facing here alone in our state like methamphetamine labs, heroin use, gun violence, hunger and the poor, mistreated youth, theft, and poverty. Why are you singling out marijuana use with "any other illegal drug"? Mr. Selling it is far far from the same as "any other drug"
So yes, let us pray for those who are ignorant.
I want to thank Republicans Richard Burchell of Gilmanton, Guy Comtois of Barnstead, Charles Fink, and Michael Sylvia of Belmont, Bob Greemore, and Herb Vadney of Meredith, and Democrat Ruth Gulick of New Hampton for supporting the legalization of marijuana.
Thank you again representatives for listening to the people.

Brandon J. Morin
