I am extremely disappointed that the East Valley Tribune would oppose Prop. 203, the medical marijuana initiative. I thought the Tribune was pro freedom. Apparently I was wrong.

Prop. 203 is substantially different from the medical marijuana laws in California, Colorado and Montana. If people are opposed to the use of marijuana for medical reasons, they should not use it.  But don’t dictate to me what I may put into my own body in the privacy of my own home.

It seems to me that the right to self-medicate should be a fundamental right. Apparently the East Valley Tribune disagrees.
