Our post yesterday about a stage 4 cancer patient whose medical marijuana application was rejected -- and then presumably reinstated -- because of a new health department policy drew a fiery response to one reader, who decried the sort of bureaucratic decision-making that can leave suffering individuals out in the cold.
Here's what anticompassion had to say:
More stories like this one please! The public needs to hear every instance of bureaucrats using the rules to keep patients suffering. It's almost like our politicians are in favor of death and pain.
The CDPHE program isn't even making the stuff available to the people who truly need it. Clearly they have too much power to get between doctors and patients.
Be sure to contact your legislators with your thoughts prior to the 2011 session. 100,000 patients should be filling up their representatives' inboxes with daily demands for legalization!
