LETTER: Things getting out of control

So what is next? Will they legalize harder drugs? asks letter-writer

I am a woman with three children and a husband. I am a non-smoker, non-drinker and non-drug user. I am healthy and happy.

I am disgusted with alcohol being abused by people. Alcohol is legal and is killing people all over the world. Cigarettes, also legal, kill people worldwide.

Marijuana is a drug. It might save lives but it is addictive. It should not be available throughout Sooke – one dispensary across the street from another.

How can Sooke let two marijuana shops open up in such a small town?

Now they are going to legalize marijuana. Do you know how many people in our society are milking the government sitting on their rear ends not working?

This is definitely out of control. I thought we were all on the right track to a great future but this really puts a fear in the back of my head raising my children in this society.

I am living out in the wilderness to create an old school lifestyle for them, paying money to put them in Montessori school and then this stuff is on the news? So what is next? Will they legalize harder drugs?
