Communitsts, not conservatives, would favor pot prohibition

I’m writing about Robert Cooper’s not-so-thoughtful letter June 12, “Liberals never cease to amaze.”

How Cooper manages to equate our government’s policy of marijuana criminalization, which is essentially a policy of our government dictating to its adult citizens which substances we may or may not consume – even in the privacy of our own homes with WWII, Hitler and communism, is beyond me.

It seems to me that prohibition is a policy that communists would favor – not “true” conservatives. “True” conservatives believe our government should protect us from our enemies – not ourselves.
