Opinion: Vote to end marijuana prohibition in Nevada, California

Regarding ending cannabis prohibition, as referenced in the Oct. 19 Bonanza article, “Election 2016: To legalize marijuana in Nevada or to not legalize,” Colorado citizens heard it all before and voted.

Every subsequent poll indicates citizens continue supporting the end of cannabis prohibition and there is every reason to believe when Nevada (and California) citizens end cannabis prohibition, you will not look back with regret either.

To expose just one aspect of the farce: When, “Seventy-five percent of people in the Washoe County rehab centers are in there for marijuana abuse,” voters should ask, how many are there who honestly need rehab vs. those who are there to avoid going to jail?

Then ask Mr. Jason Guinasso, “For whose benefit?”

It’s time for America to stop caging responsible adults for using the relatively safe God-given plant cannabis. A sane argument to continue cannabis prohibition doesn’t exist.
