First let me say that I consider both Rep. Stephen Webber and Rep. Mary Still to be friends and good Democrats. However, I can not agree with their stance on medical marijuana.
In November 2004, we, the people of Columbia, voted to support medical marijuana by 70 percent. The federal government no longer threatens to prosecute those who comply with such laws and the American Medical Association no longer opposes rescheduling of marijuana. Many of our citizens could benefit if we wake up and stop living in the past.
I call on Rep. Still and Rep. Webber to do the right thing and stand up for the people of Columbia by signing on with other Democrats as co-sponsors of the medical marijuana bill this year.
