I'm writing about your thoughtful editorial: "Medical Injustice"
(March 26).

I'd like to add that one of the medications prescribed by my personal
physician for my arthritis pain and inflammation, has the rare
potential side effect of death. In other words, if I take this
prescription medication as prescribed, I can die as a result.

On the other hand, marijuana has never been documented to kill a
single person in the 5,000 year history of its use.

For me, marijuana is the more effective medication. Right now, if
adult citizens opt for the safer and more effective medication, they
are subject to arrest and being sent to jail with violent criminals.

Is something wrong with this situation? I think so.
