Dear Mr. Smith,

This evening I had the unpleasant task of wading through your invective and 
slander about medical marijuana and those who support its regulated use. I 
remind you that Proposition 215 passed overwhelmingly. I do not believe 
that the majority of California voters are either "potheads," "dope 
peddlers," nor exclusive members of the "doobie sect" whatever that is.

...The AMMA Medical Advisory Board is comprised of professionals. We do not 
support drug abuse of any kind. Nor do we feel that medical cannabis is a 
"miracle drug" useful for anyone with any condition. We support a patients 
Right under the California Constitution to utilize medical cannabis upon a 
Physicians recommendation. We further call upon all concerned to adopt 
reasonable guidelines for medical cannabis cultivation, distribution, 
possession, and use ...

In Faith and Service,

Jay R. Cavanaugh, Ph.D.

State Recall Coordinator
