Note: Parenthetical remark by the Sun editor.


I am outraged by the arrogant and uninformed comments by Health
Minister Rona Ambrose concerning the medicinal use of cannabis. I
suffer from chronic foot pain and have spent thousands of dollars for
surgery, a titanium implant, orthotics, orthopaedic shoes, and pain
killing drugs. Nothing available in Canada has relieved the pain. I
had the opportunity in Colorado to use a legal Extreme Relief THC
Salve that comes in a tube that looks like an underarm deodorant and
is just as convenient to use. It is the only effective relief that I
have found for my condition. The salve is not smoked or taken
internally. So why can't we have it available in Canada?
