Dear Editor: Please support the medical marijuana bill before the 
Alabama Legislature.

As a Christian who helped re-legalize the relatively safe, God-given 
plant cannabis (kaneh bosm/marijuana) for sick citizens in Colorado, 
one reason I voted for President Barack Obama is because he said he'd 
stop the federal government from caging sick Americans in states 
which chose to allow it.

Now, since the federal government will no longer present a threat to 
those state's rights for using the plant, a sane argument to cage 
sick Americans for using cannabis doesn't exist. It will no longer 
contradict federal law. Further, I expect to see the rest of the 
United States follow suit.
