Medical marijuana has long record of safety

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

Re: Local family moving for marijuana treatment, Nov. 20.

As a Colorado citizen who helped re-legalize cannabis (marijuana) for sick people, I welcome the Houk family.

The list of scientific evidence proving cannabis contains medical and life-saving qualities is staggering and it’s growing nationally and internationally every month.

Cannabis has been used medically for more than 5,000 years with out a single death. Zero. That’s safety on a Biblical scale.

A sane or scientific argument to cage sick citizens for using the relatively safe God-given plant cannabis doesn’t exist.
