Letter: Jindal prudent on pot

RE: “Gov. Jindal: I’m open to medical marijuana for La.”: I am glad that Gov. Bobby Jindal is moving toward medical marijuana for patients with serious illnesses. I think it is a very good treatment for people with horrible conditions and is a good step toward complete legalization in Louisiana. However, he is correct in being strict on it not falling into the wrong hands. It seems that the rest of the country is moving toward complete legalization, which seems to be the right step in helping to boost the economy.
