I have multiple sclerosis. First, let me tell you that I don't use
marijuana. I have, however, smoked it before and it did relieve my
symptoms, greatly. I have not had any medicine that could help my
symptoms as well as marijuana.

I am outraged at the lack of understanding about medical marijuana. I
know there are some who misuse the system and I believe that in all
walks of life, people use the system for the wrong reasons. But if the
government would get involved in legalizing the use of medical
marijuana, it would be able to control it much better.

We need the leaders of this country to help us. Who else do we have?
As I said before, I don't use marijuana because it's illegal and I
won't do anything against the law. I am a good citizen and have never
been in trouble, so I am not about to start now by using the medicine
I so dearly need until it is legal to do so.

Please help me and others like me. We have no one else.
