Re "Medical pot dispensary raided by DEA agents," Sept. 27: This is a 
sad time here in California.

More than 10 years ago, we the voters approved Proposition 215.

But the federal government does not see it that way.

It still treats marijuana as a hard drug. There are so many other 
things the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration could be doing 
instead of stealing the medicine of patients here in our state.

I would like to know why the DEA is not finding better ways to spend 
its money on other things like busting meth labs.

I am fed up with the DEA saying that marijuana is not a medicine.

If it is not a medicine, then why was the federal government paying 
for a small program in Mississippi to grow medicinal marijuana and 
give it to a handful of people?
