I am writing in reference to your front page article concerning the police bust of Nature’s Harvest.
I am not a medical marijuana user. I have been a part of the medical field for over 20 years. I have become aware of the many good uses for cannabis. Unfortunately, people do not take the time to educate themselves.
Now that it was determined by the voters to make it legal, the confusion is rampant. It is just another excuse for our law enforcement to bully those who are trying to help others.
I thought it was very unprofessional for Michele Nelson to include in her article Ms. Golliglee’s appearance and the color of her garage door. What does that have to do with anything?
Why don’t we talk about how much our drug companies are making off of prescription drugs, even though they are FDA approved. They are killing people.
If you do your research, you will find cannabis is a natural substance that has helped many people, but the taboo of “pot” has many hiding their use.
Are you using drugs? Does that make you a druggie? Do you research what you put in your mouth and how it will affect your body?
Yes, Ms. Golliglee’s making money. Would you show up to your job if you didn’t get paid?
Let’s talk about all the good she has done for others by being open and research what medical marijuana can do for people that other supposedly legal substances can’t.
Your reporter needs to do her research and stick to the facts. The law enforcement needs to have a better understanding of the marijuana controversy.
Editor’s note: Don’t blame the reporter. Blame the editor. I thought the description of the strange scene in the street as Ms. Golliglee watched the police search her house was interesting and revealing. I didn’t think the description was slanted against her in any way. But clearly some readers — and Ms. Golliglee herself — feel otherwise. That’s unfortunate. We weren’t trying to pass judgment. But I actually think we should include more description into our stories rather than less. Still, we appreciate the feedback.
