Medical cannabis has been proven to relieve pain in many conditions. Those who oppose Proposition 2 all have a vested interest in denying convenient and legal access to it.

The medical establishment always wants to have its greedy hand involved. They would have people who are already financially strapped have to pay $100 for a doctor’s visit in order to get a prescription, preferably each time a patient needs a refill. They do not want easy access.

Anyone knows that those with criminal intent can easily get low- or risky-grade marijuana, through friends or on the streets of Salt Lake, about any time. Why not make it safe, high-quality and legal?

I won’t venture into any church’s motives for shooting down common-sense ideas that are obvious, in the name of protecting us from ourselves.
