I have been a dedicated reader of the Tulsa World for probably 50 
years and have never read a more uninformed editorial ("Medical pot," 
April 18).

There are many respectful doctors and members of the media including 
a multisegment report by Dr. Sanjay Gupta on NBC that outlines and 
documents the advantages of medical marijuana for certain types of illnesses.

What you do not realize is that most of the types of medical 
marijuana available in legal states, like Colorado, does not contain 
the ingredient that makes the person taking it high, just provides 
relief from pain and seizures.

As a parent with a daughter who cannot take any traditional pain 
relievers, a trip to Colorado gave her tremendous relief. Come on, 
Tulsa World, become informed.
