I agree with Ontario marijuana advocate Russell Barth that "there
would be a public outcry" if it were another medical issue.

Has anyone else noticed that prohibitionists against medical marijuana
are almost all meanspirited?

Many who consume prescription drugs, as well as beer and wine, whiskey
and gin, cigarettes and cigars, and caffeine products seem motivated
by a desire to inflict suffering on cannabis users and providers.
