STONE BEING HYPOCRITICAL IN POT STANCE
Stone being hypocritical in pot stance
This letter is in regard to the recent actions of Riverside County's own captain of hypocrisy, one (Supervisor) Jeffrey Stone. Mr. Stone, while recently addressing a medical marijuana advocate on Feb. 7, made a comparison of marijuana to heroin, asking Mrs. Dege Coutee if she would support heroin if it were legalized. I'd ask him the same, except I already have his answer. As a pharmacist, he sold a substantial amount of opium-based medications, i.e. hydrocodone, morphine, demerol, codeine, and oxycodone ---- all closely related to heroin.
After he removes his foot from his mouth, I'd appreciate it if he could explain to my 70-year-old friend who suffers from glaucoma why he'd consider her a criminal for alleviating her pain the way that works best for her. After that, he can explain to my other friend who sits in a wheelchair at the age of 40 suffering from MS why he doesn't want to allow him to overcome his muscle spasms. And never mind the implications inherent in attempting to undermine the will of the people.
THANK YOU MR. ERIC SCHARF FOR YOUR HONESTY. THE LETTER SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.
