No Place for Drugs?

Times Colonist (Victoria)
I must say that I nearly spilled my double shot espresso coffee the morning of July 19 when I read the column in the TC by John Robson advocating thedecriminalization of marijuana.
My wife was similarly shocked and it took her an extra cigarette just to settle her nerves.
I was so incensed I decided to go to the pharmacy and pick up Ritalin for the kidsand Prozac for the wife and me.
Then I went down to the bar to discuss this issue with my buddies over a few beers.
You can expect a letter-writing campaign from all of us making it clear to ourelected officials that there's no place for drugs in our society.
