CANCER PATIENT DENIED ASYLUM IN CANADA

Re "Pot User's Refugee Bid Is Rejected," Dec. 9: I wish I could find
consolation in knowing that the U.S. doesn't have a monopoly on
senseless immigration policy. Does Paulah Dauns, a member of the
Canadian Immigration and Refugee Board, really think that Steve Kubby
will be allowed access to medical marijuana should he be returned to
Placer County? It's hard to believe the Kubbys went through the
trouble of leaving the country to avoid a mere four-month jail
sentence unless they believe the danger of Steve joining the ranks of
Proposition 215 martyrs is real. Unfortunately, there is only one way
for Kubby to prove officials wrong: die a slow, painful death in
prison. For what?
