"Why marijuana isn't real medicine" (Oct. 22, Letters) gave us 11 reasons medical marijuana is a lie. It is a great lie! There are more reasons:
1. Marijuana is harmful to many body tissues and organs, especially brain, central nervous and reproductive systems. A good medicine shouldn't harm, says Hippocrates, modern medicine's father, many centuries ago.
2. Marijuana is addictive. A good medicine doesn't produce addiction.
3. Many powerful plants and other natural medicines without dangerous secondary effects can be used instead of marijuana.
In the last 40 years, I healed myself only with natural medicine, including homeopathy, reflexology, nutrition and herbs. I never used medical marijuana; it isn't necessary.
