LIKE LETTER writer Grant Krieger, I also have MS and use marijuana to
help me deal with my illness. I know exactly what Krieger is going
through. The disease we have is devastating. We should have the right
to decide the course of treatment we have. For years, I used the legal
drugs and today I am suffering because of it. Now though, with the
help of this remarkable plant from God, I am a real person again.

I love to be with people and I love to go out walking. I am no longer
afraid that I may urinate, or shake and fall. I spend time with my
children at the park. My life has become valuable again. My depression
has reduced. I am asking everyone to please show compassion and
telephone your MP about this issue. The sooner we get our politicians
to work on the issue the faster our suffering can put their lives back
together. We must all make this an issue in government.
