Regrading Mike Gimbel's recent letter ("Say no to legalized pot," Jan. 12), the issue is not whether cannabis is completely safe for everybody but rather freedom of choice for adults.
One in 13 children suffer from food allergies, yet we have not criminalized food. Children have died from eating peanuts, but we don't cage peanut growers, sellers or consumers.
The voters of Colorado and Washington state have decided we should not cage cannabis growers, sellers or consumers. I submit that the rest of the nation should follow their example.
