Herb Cannabis Posted November 24, 2012 Report Share Posted November 24, 2012 I came across the comments section of this new group http://marijuana-majority.com.s133485.gridserver.com/ and found this comment from Michigan State Representative Mike Callton, Michigan State Representative Mike Callton, a Republican, contacted Marijuana Majority and asked us to note his support for medical marijuana on the site: “Aside from being a state legislator, I am a Chiropractor. I have had patients tell me about how medical marijuana has helped them without the side effects of prescription drugs. The light bulb flicked on for me when a patient came in telling me that he was dying of liver cancer… He said he was losing a lot of weight but could not tolerate the medicines his doctor had given him for nausea. He got a prescription for medical marijuana and he said it was really helping him keep weight on since it eliminated the nausea and improved his appetite… When I decided that I would support medical marijuana publicly, I had to consider the political ramifications. Would this hurt my chances of being reelected? 63% of Michigan voters supported the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act and 37% opposed it. You wouldn’t be in elected office very long if you always sided with minority opposition.” This seems to be one congressman who understands what it means by a government of the people, for the people, and by the people. It makes me wish he were my representative. Hopefully his attitude will rub off on his colleagues and they will support our law as well.
