While 85 percent of Pennsylvanians polled support legalizing medical 
cannabis (marijuana), as noted in the column "Gov. Corbett's refusal 
to support medical marijuana defies public opinion and sound 
rationale" , Corbett must get down off his platform, roll up his 
sleeves and get the job done. Instead of his new stance reported in 
the news story "Corbett backs legalizing marijuana extract to help 
with seizure disorders" , the law should include citizens with 
cancer, glaucoma, pain and other ailments that doctors believe 
cannabis can help with. That requires re -legalizing the entire, 
relatively safe, God-given plant (see the first page of the Bible) 
for medical use. A sane or moral argument to cage sick citizens for 
using cannabis doesn't exist.
