The arbitrary classification of cannabis as a prohibited drug because 
it is habit-forming prevents children with ravaging diseases from 
pursuing the happiness promised by the nation's founders ("Desperate 
to get pot for ill kids," Dec 22). Isn't it more humane to exchange a 
child's suffering from dozens of seizures daily for a child almost 
seizure-free when the only price is having a marijuana habit? The 
public must demand the national legalization of medical marijuana.
