Re: "Drug trafficker has big heart" (Aug. 9).

The real drug traffickers wear suits and push pills and have their
hands in the pockets of our politicians.

Rick Simpson is a man of conviction, with a big heart, who believes in
a cause. That he received a fine at all is a disgrace. I think his
idea to make the recipient of his fine the Salvation Army is a good
one. They do more good for us than does the attorney general's office.

It's time for things to change. Marijuana is effective medicine for
many ailments, and Rick promotes the ingestion of pure essential
cannabis oil to combat cancer and other ailments. It's time we opened
our eyes and accepted that marijuana is good medicine for many who
have a real need for better health.
