Right now, our state can choose to follow the federal law or risk corruption of our state at the highest levels. Please contact our governor and your senator and tell them that you do not want the state of Montana to become the new drug dealer in town. Ask them to follow the federal law, and avoid the corruption that always attends drugs and money. Tell them we now know marijuana was a fraud from day one. We now know this drug actually suppresses the immune system and causes increased susceptibility to cancers and infections (European Journal of Immunology Dr. Nagarkatti). Ask them to protect public safety by following established paths for drug distribution in our country. We Montanans support a repeal of medical marijuana, not regulation; we reject the culture of corruption. We ask our leaders to follow the law. Repeal Bill House Bill 161 is the only real answer available to us that keeps it plain and simple and does not create an environment of federally illegal activities. Call Brian Schweitzer at (406) 444-3111. Write him a letter, or send him a fax 444-5529. Now is the time for us to take a stand and choose. Now is the time for Schweitzer to lead us and send a clear message to our youth about drug abuse. The clock is ticking. Laura Needham Billings - --- MAP posted-by: Richard R Smith Jr.
