Congrats to the MV Voice for printing the patients' side of the story. A lot of people mistakenly believe cannabis has high risk and low value. In fact, the opposite is true. As these patients demonstrate quite clearly, this miraculous plant improves the lives of millions without any of the poisonous side effects of pharmaceuticals.
Statistically, at least 70-80% of Mountain View residents support making cannabis available as a medicine. It behooves the city of Mountain View to act *as quickly as possible* to facilitate their constituents who are patients. To do otherwise is to actively work against patients.
In the meantime, people who take the risk and initiative to help Mountain View patients should be applauded and supported, not harassed.

1. The subheading should have been the headline. This story is about patients bringing their voices to the city.
2. The correct medical term is "cannabis." These are "medical cannabis" clubs, not "pot" clubs. I understand the latter makes a sexier headline but fairness dictates you use the correct term and let people judge the issue on its merits.
