Telegraph should back legalization of marijuana

Letter to the Editor

If the Telegraph accepts that the state court system is facing serious staffing and funding woes (Dec. 2 editorial: “Good law emerges from bad pot case”), accepts the production, sale and recreational use of alcohol, and accepts the notion of live free or die, then maybe The Telegraph will editorialize to legalize cannabis (marijuana) in the future.

While David Orde’s case focused on his right to privacy, the overwhelming truth is that government should not be in the business of caging responsible adults for using or growing cannabis to begin with.
