Another change needed to help lower heroin addiction statistics ("Maryland's addiction problem," Dec. 3) that doesn't get mentioned is changing marijuana from a Schedule I substance alongside heroin to a lower category or removing it altogether. Both Democratic presidential contenders Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton support that change.
How many American citizens were taught heroin is no worse than cannabis (by DARE, the DEA, etc.) only to find themselves suddenly addicted to it?
