I sent the folllowing email to the governor yesterday, and I shall probably send it as a Letter to the Editor to at least one newpaper...
Open letter to Governor Douglas, November 5th, 2004
Dear Governor Douglas, I could not help noticing your surprise and delight at Cris Ericson’s strongly worded support for President Bush when we ended our session on VPT’s Super Sunday.
Now I don’t suppose your opposition to legalizing marijuana has lessened because of this position of the Marijuana Party gubernatorial candidate.
But could you be ready to consider some of her suggestions? As she said, you can issue pardons.
How about enough pardons of marijuana offenders to lower our present inmate population so that we would have room to bring home the prisoners who are presently in out of state private prisons
I hope you will give this some serious consideration.
Sincerely, Patricia Hejny
