To the Editor:
Letter writer Robert Sharp of the Drug Policy Alliance is right on the mark regarding marijuana in America. I wish more people would take the time to get the facts on this issue.
Countries throughout the world are moving away from the American war on drugs for more successful harm reduction strategies. We, on the other hand, continue to fill our prisons with non-violent drug offenders only to 2-out-of-3 return to prison after their release. This cannot be considered success.
There is a better way.
