Letters: Leave marijuana users alone

I imagine this is the feeling many had as alcohol prohibition began to settle in. I don’t know what they had to look back upon as a moment of failed history, but we can look to their prohibition to see the absurdity of pushing marijuana down the same road.

How does anyone differentiate between what happened to alcohol and what is happening to pot? What’s the difference? Is it merely because you don’t partake, so you have little to no concern about it?

Perhaps you’re trying to come from a positive place, a place where you’re protecting your kids — but protecting them means watching them, not legislating danger away from them.

We are not bubble-wrapping the entire country to keep your kids protected. We aren’t closing strip clubs or liquor stores, and we know some are selling to kids, even in this very valley.

Stop pushing your rules, your morals, your views on everyone else. We are just attempting to live as peacefully and calmly as possible; that’s why we smoke pot; to not get riled up. We smoke to relax and think, clarify our opinions and really think on the opinions of others.  

At the very least, please stop all this dispensary ban talk if we aren’t going to talk about legalization. Please leave us alone, as we leave you alone.
