Letter to the Editor
Saturday, May 17, 2014, 9:00 p.m.

While 85 percent of Pennsylvanians polled support legalizing medical cannabis (marijuana), as noted in the column “Gov. Corbett's refusal to support medical marijuana defies public opinion and sound rationale” , Corbett must get down off his platform, roll up his sleeves and get the job done. Instead of his new stance reported in the news story “Corbett backs legalizing marijuana extract to help with seizure disorders” , the law should include citizens with cancer, glaucoma, pain and other ailments that doctors believe cannabis can help with.

That requires re -legalizing the entire, relatively safe, God-given plant (see the first page of the Bible) for medical use. A sane or moral argument to cage sick citizens for using cannabis doesn't exist.
