Cannabis medicine has re-entered mainstream medical practice

Arguments draw line: criminals vs. patients
Your editorial "Don't make a bad marijuana law worse" (Feb. 4) claims that Oregon's medical marijuana "law is clearly being abused in a big way." The evidence you give to support this claim is that 16,000 people have medical marijuana cards.
Who are these people? They're your neighbors and co-workers. Their doctors have determined that medical marijuana is appropriate medication for them. They suffer from a long list of conditions (see www.letfreedomgrow.com/cmu/DrTodHMikuriya_list.htm) and they do not use marijuana to get "stoned." They use it to be normal, functioning human beings.
Cannabis medicine has re-entered mainstream medical practice. One out of every four doctors in Oregon has recommended medical marijuana. It is time to accept this and stop persecuting people based on the medicine they use.
