Please vote Yes on Question 3: medical marijuana alleviates suffering and improves the lives of many of us facing cancer, intractable pain, multiple scleroris, etc. The Metrowest Daily News editorialized in favor of Question 3 noting that current policies deny an effective treatment for people suffering with serious illnesses. http://www.metrowestdailynews.com/opinions/editorials/x303002903/Editorial-Marijuana-for-the-sick
I am one of those people, and I am counting on your support for the medical marijuana initiative. I suffer from severe allodynia -a type of nerve pain where light touch creates debilitating pain. A gentle breeze can cause a deep burning sensation over the entire right side of my body. This type of pain is often resistant to treatment with available prescription drugs. Medical marijuana gives me a type of pain relief that none of the other medications provide.

By voting in favor of Question 3 on November 6, you will be helping to improve the lives of patients across the Commonwealth.
