Letters: Pot's place in medicine

May 18, 2013

Re "The marijuana measures," Editorial, May 10

Your editorial supporting Measure D mentions medical marijuana as a treatment for glaucoma patients. In my 25 years as a glaucoma sufferer, I have never been prescribed marijuana.

In fact, research suggests that the side-effects of smoking pot outweigh any therapeutic benefits.

Medical marijuana should not be used as an excuse to pass Measure D.
