Reader: Big Pharma is leading the fight against medical marijuana
Kylie Horner's post about the arrest of doctors Joseph Montante and Dallas Williams for allegedly writing fraudulent medical marijuana recommendations spurred one reader to weigh in on MMJ enemies.
In his view, one of the biggest opposes cannabis for reasons of profit, not concern over the substance's safety.
If there is anyone lobbying against MMJ use is BIG PHARMA. They'd rather see you purchase their pain pills, get addicted in the process, develop liver damage as a result of abuse, develop a health sequelae as a result of liver damage like for example elevated cholesterol, which in turn may cause you over time to have a heart attack. Or you may just die in your sleep as a result of your painkiller abuse. Or ruin your life or somebody elses as a result of your addiction. PAINKILLERS KILL.
