I hope retiring SLO Police Chief Jim Gardiner never has a loved one get 
sick enough to need medical marijuana.

Medical marijuana should not be controlled by the police or politicians; 
but by doctors. What gives a California cop power to go against a law that 
was passed by a strong majority of voters? Cops in this state are not 
self-employed, are they?

I like the thoughts of an old teacher of mine who stated if you don't like 
a law, change it. So much for our political system. Medical marijuana 
should be controlled by doctors, NOT cops and politicians.
