Pot prohibition doesn't work [Letter]

Rep. Andy Harris offered up the prohibitionist's minority point of view regarding marijuana ("Marijuana decriminalization: up in smoke," April 1). Fact is, if he represents his constituents, he will support ending cannabis prohibition immediately since the majority of Americans no long support it or want to pay for it.

Cannabis prohibition has been one of America's worst policy failures in history, dependent on lies, half-truths and propaganda which are being exposed like never before. A sane or moral argument to continue caging or punishing responsible adults who use cannabis doesn't exist.
