Marijuana Law Is Conservative, Not Liberal

C.T. Marshall's July 31 letter characterizing Hawaii's medical marijuana 
law as an example of "liberal thinking" is just plain ignorant. This 
excellent law supports the conservative principle that a medical doctor is 
more qualified to make important health decisions on behalf of a patient 
than a bunch of politicians and government bureaucrats.
