Worth more than gold

Dear Editor:I’m writing about: “Police seize 204 pounds of marijuana” (Aspen Times, Nov. 8). I’m sure that many marijuana growers and sellers are thankful to the Two Rivers Drug Enforcement Team, the Rifle Police Department, the Rifle Fire Department and the Otero Narcotics Enforcement Unit of New Mexico.Without operations like this, marijuana would be worth what other easy-to-grow weeds are worth – very little.Thanks to the Drug Enforcement Administration and other so-called “drug warriors,” the easy-to-grow weed is worth more than pure gold – and completely tax-free.Any marijuana growers or sellers arrested will soon be replaced; they always are.Kirk MuseMesa, Ariz.
