Re: Medical marijuana worries McLellan, Aug. 20.

This concern about cannabis is rubbish. When people are very ill, suffering 
from the side effects of very toxic drugs and treatment, cannabis has been 
proven to give them an appetite for food and stop the nausea. When these 
symptoms are treated with pharmacological drugs, patients suffer from a 
host of other side effects.

This cycle goes on and on, and is based on politics rather than a logical 
attempt to help suffering human beings.
