Thank you for Tim O'Brien's Jan. 7 column. Many citizens use cannabis
responsibly and are tired of the various forms of government discriminatory
deceit directed toward them. To cage sick citizens using cannabis for relief
of pain is vile, morbid and spiteful for a civilization in the year 2002. 

It was discomforting witnessing my 16-year-old dying with cancer allowed to
self-induce morphine every six minutes for pain but denied cannabis use.
