Readers offer thoughts on legalizing pot in Michigan

Choose for yourself

Re: Chad Livengood’s June 16 report, “Legalize pot, 56 percent in Michigan poll say”: Only 56 percent support legalizing marijuana? Who is this other 44 percent who believes the government should tell you what you can and cannot put in your body?

Beware the feds

I am all for legalizing marijuana, but only when all levels of government are in concert. Adding recreational use to the existing law would be the right thing to do for decriminalization and freeing up court dockets but there has to be guarantees of the ability to freely use cannabis without fear of prosecution from any law enforcement agency when the user is in complete compliance with the law.
