Attorney General Martha Coakley is doing the right thing ("Medical 
marijuana opponents fight AG on ballot question," May 27). Opponent 
Heidi Heilman, as usual, attempts to scare or dissuade the public by 
using morphine as an example. Morphine (derived from opium) has 
created heroin addicts all over the world. Oxycontin and associated 
legal drugs in the hands of anyone with addictive tendencies results 
in doing anything to obtain said drug - stealing, violence, 
prostitution. I have never known of any marijuana user doing any of 
these things to obtain it.
