I’m writing about the not-so-thoughtful guest commentary (Aug. 18) by Alex J. Romero: “Who says marijuana is good medicine?”
A couple years ago I had a very close personal friend die from pancreatic cancer after a nine-month battle with this terrible disease. Marijuana did not cure her cancer. However, it did make her much more comfortable and able to tolerate her other medications without vomiting.
Would Romero and other professional drug war cheerleaders prefer to have this wonderful mother and grandmother die alone in a jail cell instead of surrounded by her loving family?
It appears so.
