Re: Marijuana Committee Rant

By Dave Timmerman

In response to Mr. Hanger's recent letter concerning the Marijuana Advisory committee...

Mr Hanger --- I consider myself a non-drinker --- and by this I mean that I may have a beer or two a month on average. Ask anyone who knows me and they will confirm this.

There are other individuals on the committee that also do not drink alcohol.

In addition--- you obviously have not been reading the newspaper or listening to the radio on this subject as there is at least one person on the committee that is a pot smoker and several that voted yes on proposition 2.

Kids read Sitnews too ----

So next time... before you resort to calling people "one-dimensional, one-sided bunch of liquid refreshers" please at least leave me out of your fact-free rant. I would hate to have to show up at your door with my 4 kids for an apology and so you could explain to them that you know nothing about their father and the kind of man he is.
