COLORADO - It's luciferous to deny sick citizens ("Parents, experts 
worry about young brains on pot," March 4) access to the relatively 
safe God-given plant (see the first page of the Bible) cannabis 
(marijuana). Cannabis prohibitionists spend too much time diverting 
the topic from responsible sick citizens using cannabis without threat 
of overzealous government discriminating against them to all sorts of 
unrelated drug use issues which does nothing to address the actual 
needs of sick citizens. When cannabis is used medicinally, it usually 
replaces substances which are far more harmful to both sick citizens 
and the by general population when they are abused. Cannabis has been 
documented medicinally for thousands of years and the only reason it 
is currently unavailable is due to lies, half-truths and propaganda 
emanating from cannabis prohibitionists. Prohibitionists should not be 
involved between the doctor and patient relationship.

It's commendable to keep youth from the plant cannabis but caging sick 
citizens who use it is the wrong way to do it.
