STILLWATER, Okla. —
To the editor:
The final weeks for the petition drive to vote on legalizing medical marijuana for Oklahoma are coming to a close. It's a good time to consider signing it, if not done so already.
Sick Oklahomans, including most of all, little children with severe epilepsy that is not responding well to conventional medical treatment, should have the legal right to medical marijuana. Some of these children may die without the option of trying medical marijuana. Leaving Oklahoma is an option, but it presents a severe burden on most families affected. Such Oklahomans deserve better treatment and more compassion than they're getting now.
