Re "A remedy in limbo," Column One, Sept. 14

If there's one drug we should seriously consider criminalizing, it's 
the one that's being taken by the geniuses who would prevent a child 
like Jayden David from having access to a non-psychoactive component 
of marijuana. It seems further testing would be prudent, but it also 
seems that, for now, cannabidiol has wrought a miracle in the lives 
of this child and his parents in controlling terrible seizures that 
used to define his life.

What kind of moral perversity can convince someone that such cruelty 
can be considered righteous? Do we need to know any more to conclude 
that we need new leadership in determining policies about these issues?
