Fuzzy Science


Perhaps the solution to the medical marijuana distribution fiasco is to do it citywide from the library’s bookmobile and benefit the library’s broken financing also.

As I recall, some years ago, former councilmembers Dan Secord (MD) and Elinor Langer opposed medical marijuana because there were professionally administered real medical alternatives.

These two responsible councilmembers also were courageous to support state-mandated water fluoridation in a council meeting that rivaled the Salem witch trials. We still do not fluoridate as required by state law and poor children suffer the loss.

Science is the last refuge of honesty. — Gary Breitweiser
