D.C. pot law is none of Harris' business

The congressman should quit meddling in other people's affairs

I am sick of Republican politicians who follow their own agenda rather than the will of the people who elected them.

Rep. Andy Harris has done just that by making something that's none of his business a rider on the budget bill ("Harris becomes the face of latest anti-pot measure," Dec. 10).

The District of Columbia voted by a majority to legalize marijuana. But Mr. Harris, who is from Maryland's Eastern Shore, disliked the measure and so piggybacked his opposition to it onto the new budget.

Where does he get off thinking he has any right to meddle in another district's affairs? That is one reason I will never be a Republican or vote for one.

I want to make my own decisions on matters that affect me and to elect people who reflect my ideas and those of a majority of voters on an issue — not some overstepping congressman who needs to stay out of people's business.
