Dear Editor: Kudos to Angel Raich for continuing to stand against the prohibitionist zealots who would "protect and serve" by incarceration ["Weed Watch," News, Dec. 2]. It is hard to find a more noble and heroic stand since Rosa Parks refused to relinquish her seat. Medicine ought to be freely chosen with a physician’s guidance, and without fear of arrest. The right to preserve one's life is fundamental. That holds true for liberty and the pursuit of happiness, as well. In a nation with thriving alcohol and tobacco industries, it is absurd that any responsible adult must live with the life-diminishing, pervasive fear of arrest for cannabis. The injustice, harm and financial burden of cannabis prohibition must end. It has no moral authority.
