As a federal medical marijuana exemptee, I would like the public to know how
I suffer daily because of the war on drugs.

I live with excruciating pain due to lack of a good quality, continuous and
affordable untainted source of cannabis. As a board member for Canadians For
Safe Access and the National Compassion Society, and a public speaker and
member of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, I try to ensure just that.

Our website, the Medical Marijuana Mission, has received more than four
million visits from all over the world.

If you are serious about stopping all of the crime and uncertainty
associated with marijuana use in Canada, tax this plant and put it into a
regulated market where people have more controlled and responsible access.
