Re "Cannabis isn't medicine," Forum, Nov. 14:
Wow! I'll bet for Halloween this year, you went as an ostrich, Mr. Stock. Your closed-mindedness and refusal to consider actual results with actual children is just astounding. Of course there is much research to be done on the use of non-intoxicating marijuana extracts, which is what is being used in this case, but that doesn't mean we should turn our backs on some of the amazing well-documented results in treating children with seizures.
My God, if we have the opportunity to dramatically improve the lives of these suffering children and their families, who are also suffering tremendously it is inconceivable, if not downright immoral, to not provide them this tremendously beneficial relief while the research continues.
