Boulet MEDICAL MARIJUANA LAW WILL ACCESS FOR THOSE IN NEED State Sen. Dave Lewis seems to have acknowledged every other opinion he deems valid to validate his own without stating he has an opinion. That shows what years of experience can do. What's really wrong though, did you miss the business train you seem to admire or was it the pressure of the House whip? In what part of your opinion did you forget to mention those who will not be able to acquire the medicine they need and suffer without and in some cases die because of their suffering because of SB423? Did you consider the legal and social security ramifications of up to 50 times more grow operations within adolescent communities? Did you consider their families or the social ramifications of normalizing such mores by bringing the "business" home? Did you consult local authorities or the counties for their opinion on local regulation you have imposed? Considering the suffering and death portrayed in Sunday's exposition in The Montana Standard, I wonder what love, peace or joy, for starters, would have chosen to do. I pray for the suffering and losses of all those suffering toxic pharmaceutical prescription, I pray for the families of those who have lost children and family to all addictions, I pray for those suffering addictions of all forms and I pray for the recognition of less lethal health choices in free society and for better life.
