Never before has an election for attorney general meant so much to me 
and our state's medical marijuana program cardholders ("Pot emerges 
as difference in AG race," April 24). Dwight Holton motivated me to 
get involved with his comments at the Eugene City Club debate. It 
infuriated me to read he wanted to work with Republican legislators 
who had previously filed bills that would gut our law and take away 
our medicine.

Ellen Rosenblum has always worked in Oregon law after graduating from 
the University of Oregon, first as a lawyer and then as an appeals 
court judge. She is well-respected and praised by her peers in the 
legal profession and endorsed by former Gov. Barbara Roberts.

Rosenblum's position that prosecuting people for possessing small 
amounts of marijuana does not represent the best use of our resources 
should make sense to all voters.
