Re "Medical pot ID program gets El Dorado OK," June 7: The El Dorado
County Board of Supervisors voted to begin a state ID card system for
medical marijuana patients. The ID helps police officers identify
patients so taxpayer money is not spent on people who have not
committed a crime.

Those of us who reside in Sacramento are patiently waiting. Our board
of supervisors should be working diligently to provide Sacramento
residents with the same protection.

Since we require our police officers not to be discriminatory, it is
important that we as a community help them by allowing patients to
obtain a card identifying them as a valid certified Californian patient.
