Re: "Doctors more open to medicinal pot: Study," (Jan. 7) No surprise 
to me when there is so much science available in regards to medicinal 
cannabis. I am saddened when I look at 12 states in the U.S. that 
have legal medicinal cannabis programs now and every one of them has 
more people signed up to use legal medicinal in one year than Canada 
has signed up in five years of having a legal medicinal cannabis 
program in place. I always liked to believe Canada was one of the 
more compassionate countries. The facts show that is not the case -- sadly.

effectiveness of medical pot.)
