The request is simple to the DEA, "cease and desist." The federal 
government continues to fight an irrational war against medical marijuana; 
the sick and struggling are the victims here.

I ask, is the media in this town truly serving the American people? Medical 
marijuana is important. Why wasn't the protest against the DEA not covered 
in the Journal Times? An estimated nine million people in the United States 
use marijuana. One-quarter of a million people in the U.S. have been 
arrested. Once again, cease and desist. The time is long overdue to bring 
science and sanity together on this issue. Why make criminals out of patients?
