There seems to be a big misunderstanding of the use of marijuana for
medical purposes. If one is in pain, the marijuana lifts the person
out of pain to a normal plane. If you use marijuana to get rid of
pain, you don't get high, you are just painless.

There is no reason for anyone to be in pain - it is not only extremely
uncomfortable, but it also causes stress to the body which, in turn,
causes more pain and damage. It's time for the supervisors to stop
pushing their own personal (albeit, incorrect) beliefs on the people
of the county.

It seems to me to be allowing cruel and unusual punishment to those
whose only crime is to get sick.
