    A legalized marketplace is preferable

    Regarding Tom Keane’s Aug. 5 op-ed “The ‘medical’ sham,” it’s true that anyone in California who wants a medical marijuana recommendation can get one. The recommendation allows consumers to purchase locally grown marijuana of known quality and safety from dispensaries that generate tax revenue.

    As long as there is a demand for marijuana, there will be a supply. Is it somehow preferable that consumers purchase untaxed marijuana from Mexican drug cartels that also sell cocaine, meth, and heroin?
