Letter – Clueless

Re: Pot should never be legal (Letters, Feb. 16-22)

Mr. Wheeler is, quite simply, clueless. First: if only “clean, fresh air” should go into lungs, then all air polluters, including all fossil fuel burning cars, should be illegal. Second: a 20-year study at UCSF (published this year) found that moderate cannabis use is not harmful to lungs. Third: he insults every single medical user who can sleep, eat, move their body and/or tolerate their pain by using cannabis. Fourth: only someone wholly unfamiliar with cannabis could claim that cannabis lessens one’s feelings. Perhaps he is confusing cannabis with alcohol, which I note he is not spreading misinformation about.
