Comment: Parenthetical remarks by the Sun editor, headline by hawk

THANK YOU for bringing a very important issue to the attention of the
public. I want to take this opportunity to remind you that two very
prominent individuals within the Canadian drug reform movement, namely Lynn
Harichy and Grant Kreiger, suffer from multiple sclerosis.

Both of these individuals claim that marijuana provides them with relief
from the symptoms of MS but they are treated as criminals by our justice

Is it any wonder that MS sufferers must turn to black-marketeers for
medicine in light of the callous treatment afforded them by the health
system? Would you want your mother to be treated this way?
