My heart goes out to medical cannabis crusader Grant Krieger in his 
noble quest to supply the ill with an ancient and honourable 
medicine. ("Court denies activist's pot appeal," Nov. 6.) The 
prohibitionists in our midst ought to be ashamed of themselves that 
they would stand idly by and let the ill suffer in the name of the 
therapeutic state. Canadians need to repeal prohibition in order to 
let good people like Krieger use whatever they please to make 
themselves feel better after being struck with an illness that 
mainstream medicine can do little for. He deserves the Order of 
Canada for his heroic efforts against all odds to take on the establishment.
