Letter: Polk fixates on marijuana issue

Sheila Polk's letter, published 9/11, was not the first time she has fixated on the question of marijuana. She brought the same white-washed, tired, flaccid arguments to public affairs television as well.

I could cite what some would call an equally tired response and I'm sure my arguments would make Ms. Polk's eyes roll just as hers made mine. But more to the point: does Ms. Polk have too much time on her hands? Are there not enough other crimes to prosecute?

Yavapai County deserves a prosecuting attorney who will focus hard on saving her constituents from assaults, burglaries and identity thieves. Instead, we have one who's endlessly fixated on trying to save marijuana smokers from themselves!

Will someone, anyone, please run against Sheila Polk? You've already won my vote and I don't even know your name.

Hey Randy just read the comments posted in the Daily Courier to get your fill of opposing facts and comments. 99.5% are against Shelia and Pro the LAW.

This battle is over and the people have spoken.

Time to move on.

DID YOU KNOW? Sheila Polk's office does not have an e-mail address? So not only are her political views from the 1970's, but her office administration is from the 1970's as well!! How can anyone have the slightest idea how to fight computer crime when they are so backward that they don't have an e-mail address??
There are plenty of facts available. IF you truly are interested, Ms Polk also submitted this letter to the Prescott Daily Courier as well. If you look it up there, you will find many reader comments challenging the so-called facts she cites. (prescottaz.com)

Article comment by: where are opposing views?

I so appreciate our county attorney's stance and her fact filled information. Funny, I don't see any facts to back up the opposing views. Thanks for representing us!
