Against legalization of marijuana

To the editor:

The legalization of marijuana would be a big mistake. Do we want high people driving? Do we want high people becoming unmotivated? Is marijuana the alcohol problem of the future?

Pot changes brain chemistry with extended use. Granted, pot gives one a sense of euphoria. So do other illegal drugs. But how many of us want to legalize methamphetamines or heroin?

And what about the tax money lost to lack of ambition in young people? Are we going to see our children’s souls for easy tax money?

What does God think about legalizing marijuana? I’d like to know.
