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.
