Vote ‘yes’ on proposition 19

I just want to comment on Sheriff Royal’s reply to publisher Jeff Ackerman’s column on the so-called “post busts.” Yes, illegal acts are being committed, as the Sheriff points out. But, one must ask oneself, “why”? For the simple reason that profits generated by illegal marijuana by the murderous thugs in Mexican drug cartels are absolutely obscene, not to mention the horrible costs of human suffering, here and in Mexico. Law enforcement folks around our state who rail against making marijuana legal are, by and large, missing the point. Let’s put these murderers out of business once and for all. Take away their profits … Vote “YES” on Proposition 19.
