Pubdate: Sun, 28 Apr 2013 Source: The Telegraph (IL) Author: Kirk Muse Note: Headline by MAP IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THIS SITUATION? Kudos for your outstanding editorial: "Medical marijuana the right choice" (4-22-13). I'd like to add that one of the medications prescribed by my personal physician for my arthritis pain and inflammation has the rare potential side effect of death. In other words, if I take this medication as prescribed, I can die as a result. On the other hand, marijuana has never been documented to kill a single person in the 5,000-year history of its use. For me, marijuana is the more effective medication. Right now, if adult citizens opt for the safer and more effective medication, they are subject to arrest and being sent to jail with violent criminals. Is something wrong with this situation? I think so. Shouldn't adult citizens have the freedom to choose what goes into their own bodies in the privacy of their own homes? KIRK MUSE Mesa, Ariz.
