Grant Krieger is one of the bravest people I have ever had the honour
to speak to.  As a fellow multiple sclerosis victim and medical
marijuana user, I fear very much that his health is in danger.

How can we allow our lawmakers to continue these kinds of actions on
disabled people?  Grant will be further damaged by his illness if he
is made to go without this herb.

This disease will damage the nerve covers; damage that will take Grant
time to heal from.  His disability will become much worse, especially
in cool, damp jail cells.

I'm not sure if I could be as strong as Grant is but I know if it came
to that I would do exactly the same thing. I truly understand why
Grant feels the way he does. I have confidence that our citizens are
more aware of this issue then our government wants to believe.

Hopefully our government will do something soon, and stop letting
sick, disabled people suffer in this war on a plant that has never
killed anyone.
