EDITOR: Paul Gullixson's column on the proliferation of marijuana growers in Sonoma County was shocking ("Wake up and smell the pot," Sunday). Did we really vote that anyone and everyone could grow their own patch of marijuana? I thought it was to be controlled by pharmacist groups, providing it for people with a patient card. What have we gotten ourselves into?

I hope the Board of Supervisors can see its way clear to making the rulings on who and where marijuana can be grown. As to the poor unfortunate landlord, surely some restitution can be found for the destruction of his property.
