Today's New York Times has a short and sweet letter responding to John Tierney's excellent column on marijuana policy from a few days ago.

To the Editor:

“Lighting Up in Amsterdam,” by John Tierney (column, Aug. 26) is an intellectual breath of fresh air.

A half million arrests a year: that’s hard to take, but it does keep lots of people employed, on both sides of the law.
