Minnesota legislators: Please make me eligible for medical marijuana

In treating PTSD, it's far safer than anything Big Pharma has to offer.

Reader Rod Johnson responds to So, 90 percent of patients in Minnesota like their medical marijuana:

Even though I'm grateful Minnesota has passed medical marijuana for our sickest of patients, it would be great if it would lighten up a bit on who it's caring for.

There isn't a day that goes by that I'm not thinking about moving to another state just for the medical marijuana benefits. I'm sick of taking a handful of pharmaceuticals for my PTSD, anxiety, ADHD, etc.

Each medication I take has a possible side effect list a page long. Some are organ failure and even death. That doesn't help my anxiety any, and marijuana has nowhere near the side effects these lab-made pills do.

Pharma and their lobbyists have been slowing this process down. They're not in it to help me. It's about profit city.
