Letter to the editor: Wrong choice

To the editor: Voters are told to vote, cast their ballot. It is their responsibility to do so but, without having studied the issues, they should stay home. For example, voting yes for the use of marijuana when they do not know the devastating results.

Letter to the editor: Pot is not healthy
