It's Alive!



Grant Scott-Goforth is mistaken to equate ending cannabis (marijuana) prohibition with an experiment ("Give It Away Now," April 9). Like the original prohibition with alcohol, which historically is known as the Grand Experiment, the sequel, with cannabis, is the experiment. More like a Frankenstein experiment.

The effort in Washington D.C. is simply a desperate attempt to end one of America's worst policy failures in history. Ending the negative consequences of cannabis prohibition requires forcing government to regulate cannabis. Unfortunately, Republican Congress chooses to force the black market to regulate the God-given plant. The proof: knowing most people in D.C. who have cannabis were not given their plant material.
