Medical marijuana supplier needs to upgrade product

Re: Incorrect medical pot story gets undeserved prominence (SP, May 7). Someone should tell Prairie Plant Systems CEO Brent Zettl that to help patients who need marijuana, you might need more than MS-17/338 (the breeding line of female plants PPS uses).

I'd be a lot more comfortable if PPS would release the genetic heritage of the strain it ripped off from all the hard working people in the field of marijuana breeding. He needs far more selection, and if he's smart, he'd also grow the marijuana under the sun in greenhouses.

I've heard some nasty stuff about PPS cannabis from a lot of people who have done their homework or are medical marijuana recipients. Zettl needs to trust the people who have used his product and know what helps them.

Either PPS is missing a lot of the variables in growing proper medical cannabis or the government has put too many restraints on the program to make it effective. I sincerely hope PPS is ready to step up to the plate if the negative press is right.

People would be willing to pay more if the PPS selection is similar to what's available at the compassion clubs and if the company takes a serious crack at growing the plants above-ground. It needs to work seriously at getting a valuable medication out there in a reliable format.

MEDICAL MARIJUANA SUPPLIER NEEDS TO UPGRADE PRODUCT

LTE:

Mr. Lee's letter, "MEDICAL MARIJUANA SUPPLIER NEEDS TO UPGRADE PRODUCT ", regarding Health Canada's supply of medicinal marijuana hits the nail on the head. Most people with limited knowledge and an internet connection have access to a wealth of information to help them grow quality medicine. I can not imagine why a government funded, multi-million dollar operation could not achieve the same at a much more reasonable cost.

The refusal of Health Canada and Prairie Plant Systems to provide an acceptable medicine to those who depend on them is shameful. Forcing most MS sufferers, AIDS and cancer patients to the street corner for medication is below contempt and thier lack of concern has led many to question thier motives.

Prominent Vancouver activist, Kirk Tousaw, recently launched a civil action against Health Canada on behalf of the Victoria Island Compassion Society. The society accuses Health Canada of restricting access to the program, placing arbitrary limits on pot production and "supplying an inadequate source of cannabis." Hopefully, the courts can reaffirm that Canadians have a right to medical marijuana as a option for treatment and personal health.
