Thanks to columnist John Gleeson for sticking up for Winnipeg medical
cannabis hero Chris Buors (Political prisoner in war on herb, Nov.
25). Gleeson is completely correct in stating how wrong it is to cage
Chris for helping sick people.

I know of Chris from the great letters Gleeson noted he has written. I
hope they give him a pen and paper in jail so he can at least continue
that part of his amazing activism while unjustly incarcerated.

Chris Buors should be back in the community helping patients without
harassment or criminal sanction. Every day he sits in jail is a day
that patients are suffering needlessly. Buors deserves an award for
helping families deal with illness, not a cell and probation.
