I am writing to praise Jeff Essmann of the "Communist Workers Party of
Billings" for the modest proposal he has made for the medicinal use of
marijuana in Montana.

I'm especially proud of Comrade Jeff's efforts to ban the sale of
marijuana through a new act that would make it a crime for any person
to sell or even give away marijuana except if it is given to a close
personal family member, related by blood or marriage.

I can already see the potential for a new rise of a certain
fundamentalist community in this state to generate many more relatives
by marriage.

However, Comrade Jeff seems to have failed in his important work.
Another material grown, raised, processed, and sold throughout our
great state of Montana with enormous health benefits is being ignored.

Everyone knows that beef is an excellent source of nutrients, but few
seem to be aware of the mind altering potential for carnosine, an
anti-oxidant that has the powerful ability to chelate zinc and other
metals from brain tissue, thereby dramatically reducing the incidence
of Alzheimer's disease.

Another compound found in beef, carnitine, has been used in the
treatment of encephalopathy.

Obviously, the Montana House Human Services Committee should expand
its current important work making it illegal to buy, sell, trade in,
or process for money the medical cannabis which is so important to
relieving the suffering of tens of thousands of Montanans.

That essentially communist doctrine of Comrade Jeff should be applied
to beef as well. You should not be able to buy and sell beef - look at
all these great nutritional and medicinal properties it has. In fact,
you shouldn't be able to buy or sell anything, as the communists have
said all along.

When Montana is ready for it, I feel confident that Comrade Jeff would
provide for the care of all Montanans who still seek a free market in
re-education camps, or gulags.
