[Re "A Divided House Judiciary Committee Ponders the Pot Bill," March 
16]: Regarding the issue of marijuana cultivation for personal use, I 
would like to add my perspective as a patient on the medical 
marijuana registry. The current law permits limited cultivation 
indoors under highly restricted, difficult and costly conditions. I 
am on a fixed income and cannot afford the exorbitant price charged 
by state-run dispensaries, and, of course, my insurance will not 
cover it. Patients along with recreational users should be allowed to 
grow small amounts of marijuana for personal use outdoors as they 
would vegetables for food.
