Community Opposes Prosecution of Cancer Patient for Marijuana

This week, the Quad-City Times Edi­to­r­ial Board expressed the sen­ti­ment of the East­ern Iowa com­mu­nity in call­ing for the state to dis­miss crim­i­nal charges against can­cer patient Ben­ton Macken­zie.

Just the week before, the Sioux City Jour­nal pub­lished an arti­cle quot­ing Iowa Board of Phar­macy Exec­u­tive Direc­tor Lloyd Jessen and Iowa Office of Drug Con­trol Pol­icy Exec­u­tive Direc­tor Steven Lukan say­ing they never hear from any­one who needs mar­i­juana for med­i­cine in Iowa.

Gee, fel­las, do you think maybe peo­ple are afraid to speak out?  It’s not being para­noid if the state is really out to kill you, now, is it?  This is noth­ing short of cold-blooded, pre-meditated mur­der, Mr. Jessen and Mr. Lukan.  I see you try­ing to wash that blood off your hands, but it won’t wash off.  But, you have an arm­load of pre­scrip­tion drugs and alco­hol to help you sleep at night.  What a tragedy!

    Heh that is why some are called humans (mean­ing humane) and then you have those who do not have power to stand with dig­nity they more just like ani­mals. Well wait I have seen a few ani­mals with com­pas­sion too. So even then it is sad to see these peo­ple lose their human­ity and dig­nity must suck to be them. Doesn’t make any sense how they can be so cruel. So blind and so heart­less. But I have seen many who opposed mar­i­juana for med­i­cine then one of their kids or loved ones got sick and they were forced into try­ing it to ease their loved ones pain and even found out how it can heal sick­ness not just les­son pain and used it and apol­o­gized for their blind­ness. Let us hope this does not hap­pen to Lloyd and Steven. But as they say what comes around goes around…Forgive them for they know not what they do Creator…
