Importance of mental health

To the Editor,

I am very concerned with the casual milieu of drug addiction with the acceptance of marijuana as a legality in Rhode Island. I have witnessed in my family suicide and madness from drug addiction. Any acceptance and tolerance of drug purveyance is directly connected to the destruction of American democracy. I grew up on Block Island when decency and concern for welfare were paramount. My dear friend, Kathryn Payne Maynard, warned 60 years ago of communist infiltration and sociological destruction of values predicated upon destruction of sound minds and healthy bodies. America is drowning in debt, obesity, drug addiction, all tools of communist credulity and cynicism.
