Re "Medi-pot collective charges dropped" (Downstroke, Dec. 8): Good
news for Mountainside Collective. [Assistant District Attorney Helen]
Harberts states, "The public-safety risk of having a marijuana store
has been abated. Justice has been served." If that was their goal, why
continue the prosecution?

It should always be pointed out these would-be heroes deprived
thousands of chronically ill people of their holistic medical choice.
A choice we the people voted on and our suppressors tell us we were
too stupid to know what we voted for.

Proposition 215 was excellent in its simplicity: Create safe,
affordable access for chronically ill patients based on what their
physicians recommend. The DA and his accomplices in the judiciary
routinely ignore and omit that it is to be left to physicians. This is
so un-American as to border on dictatorship. I'm disgusted with the
whole process. They should be ashamed of themselves.
