War on pot is already lost

Obviously Nanaimo-Alberni MP James Lunney, doesn’t get it (The News, Dec. 6). Large scale grow-ops in residential areas is a product of cannabis (marijuana) prohibition, not the God-given plant (see the first page of the Bible) itself.

Further, contrary to Lunney, the majority of British Columbia citizens favor legalizing and regulating the plant.

Cannabis prohibition has run its course. It’s over. All that’s left is the formalities whether or not prohibitionist want to accept it.
