Re: Lead us not into temptation, Nov. 14. What a load of vitriolic nonsense passing for opinion.
It is one thing for the author to have concerns about legalizing cannabis, it is to be expected; it is quite another for her to blather hysterical nonsense about a matter she clearly knows nothing about. One would think that if there was even an inkling of truth to Eileen Nattrass’ fear-mongering there would be hundreds if not thousands of young people and adults alike congesting ERs and doctor’s offices right across Canada. Such is simply not the case.
What never ceases to amaze me is this notion among prohibitionists that youth and communities are being protected by the very system that, by default, delegates those substances into the hands of those who would corrupt the very same youth and communities that are supposedly protected. Go figure!
