Please read this article from Leonard Pitts, of the Miami Herald. He brings up good information concerning the need for marijuana as a safe and effective medicine. Yet this honorably discharged soldier, of whom he speaks, is still being prosecuted for wanting to use his best option: marijuana.
The difficulty that I see, in this particular matter, is that our soldier is not able to use his best medicine while he is on probation with his Stay of Adjudication of sentence.
Again, I will remind everyone that people using marijuana as medicine continue to live, and do not die. No other medication, including over the counter pain relievers like Aspirin and Ibuprofen, can make the same claim.
Thank you Leonard Pitts.
