Letter: Voting ‘Yes’
There are two referendum questions that give us a chance to reduce human suffering in this upcoming election. Allowing the use of medical marijuana for those with chronic diseases to relieve some of their symptoms will help those people feel better. Allowing doctor-assisted suicide for those who choose it at the end of life, and are in great pain, is a very humane idea. These are not only issues of compassion, but of human freedom as well. I am voting “YES” on both questions.
