Letter: We’re becoming a ‘pot state’
Sunday, July 24, 2011
People who want to legalize marijuana, a mind-altering, intoxicating addictive drug, to pay in part for drug rehabilitation, have to be on it. Otherwise their view does not make sense.
Marijuana can cause impaired driving, thus causing more accidents and deaths and make it more difficult for our great police force. Adults will give it to teens and even children, which could lead to more physical and sexual abuse. It can lead to harder drugs. Are we going to legalize them also in the name of tax revenue on drug sales?
Let the state cut back on unnecessary spending. Don’t put our young people and families at risk for more money. The beautiful state of Washington has too much integrity to put lives in jeopardy and to be known as the “pot state.”
