    Argument gets lost in a haze

    What has Tom Keane been smoking that he could write that “medical pot is just a subterfuge for getting high”? Keane (“The drug divide,” Op-ed, Sept. 8) owes an apology to the many patients who successfully use cannabis to manage otherwise intractable chronic pain, and to the rest of us for not doing his homework.

    If he “wonders where to draw the line” between the drug “Molly” and marijuana, one distinction is between four Molly overdose deaths in a week and zero marijuana overdose deaths in the past century.
