Opponents Would Force Critically Ill To Suffer

As a registered patient and the husband of a registered patient, I have 
seen and experienced the positive effects of medical marijuana.

Medical marijuana users are not stoners, potheads or losers. We are humans 
who are sick, dying and suffering from chronic illnesses that bring us to 
our knees. We use a natural substance to help with our conditions.

Whether you believe in the medicinal value of marijuana or not, would you 
deny a loved one the opportunity to try it to see if it can help them? I 
hope not.

Ask any law enforcement officer who he would rather have an encounter with 
- -- a marijuana user or a meth/crackhead. We are not violent, drug abusers 
or worthless. We are patients.
