To the editor:
First of all, what kind of advice are you giving people that haven’t tried this monster of a drug? You suggest that they “take a hit to see if it’s for you.” This sounds like the smooth-talk of a pusher. I wouldn’t be surprised if you also sold the devil-herb and these are the lines you call out to innocent children as you lurk on the edges of high schools. If this kind of under-the-radar suggestion was used with other narcotics, we would all be addicted to heroin and PCP.

Secondly, why don’t you use your full name, or is “Ryan” your dope-inspired full name, you McLovin-wannabe? Your program is also left very vague, so that people couldn’t identify you. If you truly believe that smoking weed occasionally doesn’t lead to bad consequences, why would you obscure yourself instead of using your full name, program, and favourite location to indulge in your sick drugs?

You sicken me, Ryan, and shame on you for suggesting to pot-free, impressionable students at this straight-edge university to “take a hit.” I hope your mind rots away as you suck on your bong and you forget everyone close to you. That is all.
