Readers’ Turn: The Marijuana Debate

The article mentioned that one way to measure marijuana usage is collecting samples of hair clippings from barbershops and salons.

Fellastine of KCMO said:

“Go ahead and check the hair clippings. We stoners are longhaired hippy-types who never get hair cuts!”

Elextra of San Diego addressed that idea and also the racial disparity in drug arrests:

“The first thing that should be done, before white people begin to make millions on the sale and use of marijuana, is release the thousands if not tens of thousands of black people serving time in prison for selling or using it.”
