LETTER writer William Horton shows his ignorance by equating criminals with
medical marijuana patients ("Sanctuary Politics Criminal," Examiner letters,
Nov. 8).

Views such as this are the reason it is so important for District Attorney
Terence Hallinan and Supervisor Mark Leno to stand up against federal

I have no opinion on the other criminal matters in San Francisco mentioned
in the letter, but they have nothing to do with medical marijuana patients.

In this case, Leno and Hallinan are right to stand up for patients' rights,
whereas Horton is wrong to try to characterize this as being somehow "soft
on crime." He sounds entirely too much like Republican congressmen.
