Pot as recreational activity is misguided

To the editor:

In recent times legal arbitrariness has assured private prison profits from the prohibition of pot.

Promoting marijuana enjoyment among our youth and those not so youthful is insane, dangerous and irresponsible. Marijuana should never be thought of as a sensible recreational activity. It is an extreme sport if ever there were one.

Common tobacco simply kills. Marijuana is far more treacherous.

We must look beyond superficial issues such as tax collection, meeting interest payments on high school bonds and methods for authorities to test crazed drivers.
