Huge kudos to Professor Doug Hutchinson (NOW, September 28-October 4) 
for teaching the faculty and staff at the University of Toronto that 
medical marijuana exemptees have rights here, too.

It has taken me, as a retired law enforcement officer and a drug 
reform advocate, many years to educate the Canadian public about 
cannabis as medicine. We are still a long way from where we should be.

Professor Hutchinson has brought the issue of cannabis for his 
undisclosed health issue out in a very different way. I am so proud 
of him. I was even more excited when I realized this would not be the 
last we hear from the professor, as he plans to be much more 
politically active.

Thank you so much, Professor, for assisting those of us who truly 
want to make this an easy transition for the people of Canada. You 
have helped us more than you know.
