Letter: Bloomberg doesn’t get it

Bloomberg doesn’t get it

Gov. John Hickenlooper took an amazing, bold step forward that could have lost him his election but definitely saved our taxpayers millions in court costs. Do we really want to have the expense of processing small marijuana cases? In the time of “The Great Gatsby” (my darling 82-year-old mom’s time), a couple of martinis were just right on. Now, she thinks marijuana is a drug like heroin. And in the interim, many cancer patients and other patients with pain (like my 86-year-old dad) find relief from it. No one wants a drunken driver whether from alcohol or marijuana or prescription drugs. But I think that Michael Bloomberg is stupid. He should do some research on how marijuana has helped so many patients with pain. Or perhaps he should just have another martini and call it a day.
