While reading the article on Dr. Kahn wanting to put "restraints" on medical marijuana (an issue the people voted for) and accusing Dr. Townsend of "lining his pockets," I laugh and wonder how much lining he's getting from the pharmaceutical and insurance companies to make sure the people never get to grow their own. After all, they can't exploit this thing if you can grow your own. That's why I'll never vote a doctor into office; they take care of these companies, not the people. By the way, thanks for taxing my pension, as if I haven't paid my dues to this state for the past 60 years. But since your party has successfully sent our jobs out of the country, you've got to get your tax base from somewhere. I'm sure the drug companies are going to take care of you when you finally quit living on us. Bob Gilliland Saginaw - --- MAP posted-by: Richard R Smith Jr.
