Re “From pot dreams to prison for whiz kid” (Page A1, Jan. 21): The fact that Matthew Davies faces prison time is ridiculous. Just as illegitimate evidence can cause a case to be dismissed, Davies’ case should be dropped because of California’s lack of clarity on the issue of marijuana. Regardless of whether marijuana should be legalized, California needs to get its act together before federal prosecutors punish more people.
