Re "Indoor pot farms catch on in suburban settings," May 19: Residents
who suspect their neighbors may be growing pot should live and let
live. If they call the police, they may be participating in the
persecution of sick and dying people. Many folks with cancer, AIDS, MS
and a host of other life-threatening illnesses grow cannabis in their
homes. In some cases, the herbal medicine is the only thing keeping
the patient alive. Please do not contact Crime Alert if you have
evidence of marijuana growing. Chances are the cultivators are
depending on the weed to keep them alive.
