Steven Epstein "Misinformation, and much missing in column’s view"

Boston Globe, "Misinformation, and much missing in column’s view"

ALEX BEAM’S “Gone to pot’’ (April 20, “g’’) begins with a flippant headline, followed by misdating the anniversary of the siege of Boston to 1776. The siege began late on April 19, 1775 and ended on Evacuation Day, the Suffolk County holiday that celebrates the British leaving on March 17, 1776.

As for substance, the debate over the continued prohibition of marijuana is whether we should repeal prohibition or perpetuate it.

By labeling those of us who seek repeal as “stoners,’’ Mr. Beam reveals his affection for the latter. That is his right, but missing from his column is disclosure of how many more people must to be arrested, prosecuted, and punished before marijuana will go away, how much that will cost and where the money will come from.
