Re: "Justice gone to pot," Editorial, April 5.

The justice system should be ashamed to have destroyed a good man's 
life and forced dozens of sick and dying people to return to the 
streets to buy pot where they risk arrest--or far worse at the hands 
of criminals.

Grant Krieger has been harassed and targeted by the authorities for 
the terrible crime of alleviating suffering and challenging the laws 
regarding medical use of marijuana. A hero is someone who goes into a 
burning building because he is willing to sacrifice his own 
well-being for the sake of others. Krieger is a hero who has been on 
fire a few times, but he kept going back into the flames. Now he is 
broke, a result of the choking legal costs, and has decided to give 
up the fight.

If St. George had to fight the dragon for 13 years, he would have 
given up, too! Krieger does not deserve to be left broke and broken. 
I'm sure there are many who would want to help him out, considering 
how much he has helped so many suffering people. I will start the 
fund with a donation of $100. I wish there was more I could do.
