EDITOR: I'm deeply concerned and disappointed in the actions of the 
Drug Enforcement Administration and Santa Rosa and Sonoma County 
police departments in raiding a reputable and reliable company such 
as Absolute Extracts and Care By Design. My husband and I are medical 
marijuana patients with chronic conditions that benefit greatly from cannabis.

My husband is a brain tumor survivor and hasn't been able to eat 
since radiation without the aid of cannabis. The doctors also believe 
that it is a large contributing factor in his tumor not growing back. 
And there is evidence that cannabis was instrumental in helping his 
brain make new connections after the removal of most of his right 
temporal lobe.

They rank my condition on the pain scale right up there with 
end-stage cancer, and I stopped a boatload of opiates prescribed by 
my pain management doctors within two months of getting my doctor's 

It's unconscionable to me that these actions have been taken against 
this transparent and legally operating company.
