The Collegiate Times is negligent in getting facts
correct in the article, "Marijuana is not the only pain reliever,"
(CT, Feb. 21) concerning the recent lawsuit filed by Americans for
Safe Access over medical patient use of cannabis.
The Data Quality Act requires the government to correct its
own misstatements. The assertion that marijuana has no medical value
has been historically discredited, as patently false and federal
authorities should be stopped from pushing that
Further, citizens should be allowed to choose which pain
remedy they use, not the government, especially when cannabis is
safer than any other pain medication available to humans. It seems
the author is more interested in furthering government cannabis
prohibition propaganda than getting facts correct.
