Re “‘Reefer Madness,’ revisited” (Phillip Tutor column, Jan. 2):

Star commentary editor Phillip Tutor is correct pointing out that “tobacco isn’t marijuana. Marijuana isn’t meth. Alcohol (a drug, by my definition) isn’t cocaine.”

In fact, cannabis is safer than all those substances, although the government labels cannabis as a Schedule I substance alongside heroin, while methamphetamine and cocaine are only Schedule II substances.

Cigarettes kill more than 1,000 Americans daily. In more than 5,000 years of documented use, the God-given plant (see the first page of the Bible) cannabis hasn’t killed one person. That’s safety on a biblical scale.

A sane reason to continue cannabis prohibition doesn’t exist.
