Time to Legalize Marijuana!

RECEIVED Fri., Jan. 9, 2004

Dear Editor of The Austin Chronicle,
   I was pleased to read that the Marijuana Policy Project's report card ("Weed Watch: Democrats on Drugs, Part II," News, Jan. 9) gave Democratic presidential nominee Dennis Kucinich an A+; however, one crucial fact was not printed in the article.
   Part of the reason Kucinich gets the A+ is because of his platform written on his Web site (www.kucinich.us/issues/marijuana_decrim.php) declaring that as president he will decriminalize cannabis (marijuana) and regulate it similar to alcohol. As a cannabis activist and obedient Christian, ending the policy of caging our brother for using a plant is an important issue whose time has come.
