Thank you, A. P. Porter, for the outstanding piece on the 
overreaching big-government ordinance on medical marijuana. Sad but 
true: The very people who campaign for smaller, less-intrusive 
government are the first to put the burden of oppressive laws on the sick.

This flimflam by the Butte County Board of Supervisors has little to 
do with medical marijuana; it is about big government, overreaching 
regulations, higher taxes on the sick and government oppression. Any 
government that does not meet the needs of the people is a government 
the people do not need.
