Oppose the raids against medical cannabis facilities

      Susan Englander

      San Francisco, CA

Representative Pelosi, you have been a strong advocate for patients' rights and a supporter of the use of medical cannabis in California. The San Francisco Bay area has historically been a haven for HIV/AIDS patients and others with chronic illnesses such as glaucoma, diabetes, and cancer. We the undersigned ask Rep. Pelosi to stand with us in defending medical cannabis dispensaries and patients from persecution, to advise President Obama about the unwarranted persecution of medical cannabis patients and dispensaries, to call for an investigation of the constitutionality of California dispensary closures, and to facilitate setting up a emergency medical cannabis distribution system for catastrophically ill patients whose physicians recommended medical cannabis as part of their treatment in the district you represent.

      Innocent people are being burdened here, not the actual violent criminals the government claims to be stopping with these raids. Closing down dispensaries only leads the patients to seek from illegal dealers who are really the ones profitting from legal stores shutting down. The government needs to be using this natural resource to their advantage, like they do with everything else--Keep innocent people out of overcrowded jails, legalize and tax cannabis and enjoy the added commerce from the new pot market. Or maybe just light up a join and chill out a bit.

      Freedom to use marijuana for pain due to medical conditions that prescription medication would have caused me to be on dialysis 4 years ago. I no longer have

      the bone & leg muscle pain. i now use the

      marijuana oil with only 25% use by smoking

      marijuana. Marijuana saved my life & I now

      anticipate returning to work part time at

      66 years of age. Medical marijuana can

      help far more patients with serious conditions than researchers are allowed to

      inform the public. Medical marijuana can

      be grown for a patients individual illness.

      There is absolutely no need for any patient

      to be in pain, taking prescription medication

      causing liver & kidney damage which is a

      death sentence.

      I am against drugs, it is a #HumanRight to have access to cannabis as a natural alternative to drugs.
