Letter: Legalize marijuana in Portland

As I like to say, anything is a drug if you treat it like a drug. We all know marijuana is an excellent relaxant and stimulant, such as tea. I know alcohol abuse will go down and keep Portland even safer.

I am not against alcohol by any means, I am after all a bartender and beer brewer by trade. But alcohol is abused and we all know it can lead to liver damage, cirrhosis, and death, whereas marijuana has never claimed any lives from over usage.

Please make it possible for us and our future generations to enjoy all aspects of life, we should be able to live happily and free as our fore fathers intended.

Please make the right choice, the responsible choice, on Portland Question 1.
