Reader: Marijuana legalization advocates need to take a big toke of reality
Patricia Calhoun's on-site report about this week's Great Marijuana Legalization Debate has quickly become a platform for debate among folks representing all sides of the issue. Here's a strong post from a reader who feels some advocates are living in a fantasy world.

Bring an initiative and I'll most likely sign your petitions if you have the organizational strength to even get that far. Please stop mischaracterizing the efforts of the one guy who has demonstrated his ability to get us to a better position.
