MADISON - Kudos to Dan Desmond for his April 6 Forum letter, "Let 
chronically ill decide on drug use," supporting the medical use of marijuana.

A recently released poll conducted by Chamberlain Research Consultants of 
Madison found that over 80 percent of Wisconsinites support the legislature 
passing a law to give seriously and terminally ill patients legal access to 
marijuana with the support of their physicians.

Clearly, state residents understand that making criminals out of sick and 
dying for using a beneficial herb to regain a little quality of life is not 
just cruel, but bad public policy.

When are our elected representatives going to catch up with the people who 
elect them?
