LETTER: DA and government wrongly demonize medical marijuana

To Ozaukee Press:

Ozaukee County District Attorney Adam Gerol expressed his opinions on medical marijuana in an op-ed piece in last week’s Ozaukee Press and, unsurprising to most readers, he was against it.

Since Gerol is in the business of filing criminal charges, it might do him some good to study up on the classification of drugs. The schedule system is intended to categorize drugs based on medical benefits and potential for abuse. Marijuana remains in the most severe category despite its accepted uses, while the opiates that plague our communities are rated as less severe.         Marijuana is wrongfully demonized by the federal government, and it doesn’t take a legal background to understand that.
