Letter to the editor- Medicinal pot is real

To the editor,

I have the most profound respect for individuals such as Shelly Arnold and

Ryan Landers. Shelly is willing to put herself and her reputations at risk

in order to help relieve the suffering of others. Ryan’s own bout with

AIDS has not deterred him from fighting selflessly to see that medical

marijuana is recognized as legitimate and effective medicine.

For anyone who believes that medical marijuana is just an excuse for a

bunch of drug addicts to have a fix, talk to a real patient. If your mind

is at all open, you’ll be surprised how much relief from suffering the

plant affords.
