Tobacco vs. marijuana
The front page headline of The News-Review on June 20 was: “Keep medical pot away from parks, homes.”
The Roseburg City Council is spending a lot of time making strict regulations on medical marijuana dispensaries. I was wondering if it has made similar regulations on dispensaries of dangerous and highly addicting drugs such as alcohol and tobacco? Tobacco is the No. 1 killer. Medical marijuana is not even on the list. Prescription opiates are also more dangerous.
In my opinion, there are still too many people believing all that old “Reefer Madness” propaganda. They just won’t give up on the prohibition of marijuana.
