coming for your nuts

First they came for the smokers, and I did not speak out because I was not a smoker. Then they came for the peanuts...

Last Thursday The Independent published a truncated version of my post about cannabis reclassification on their letters page.

The next day there was a response:

Peanuts in peril

Sir: Merrick Godhaven should be careful (letter, 12 January). Peanuts are banned on major airlines because of their potential to cause injury to a few passengers. The airlines led the way in banning smoking, soon to be ubiquitous. Peanuts may be next.
