LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Go after the real criminals

Recent news stories about the emphasis on police arrests forpossession and distribution of marijuana being a waste of timemakes sense. Citizens have more to fear from murder, arson, rape,muggings, robberies, auto and identity theft or home break-ins,along with ever-increasing levels of confiscatory taxation and debtby government, than individuals who get high in the privacy oftheir own homes. Law enforcement authorities should be free topursue those who commit real crimes against citizens andproperty.

Our tax dollars would be better used if police and judges spendmore time prosecuting those who commit real crimes againstindividuals or property than going after those who consume ordistribute marijuana.
