Andrew Sullivan picks up on the story of Robin Prosser — the medical marijuana patient/activist who recently ended her life.
Sully’s post got the attention of my favorite conservative blogger, John Cole, and this is what he had to say…
I have had a couple drinks, so let‰s be blunt (pardon the pun)- and this goes out to anyone, of any political persuasion, anywhere, who had a problem with this woman using marijuana to alleviate her pain (especially the alleged ‹conservativeŠ federalists who can‰t handle the thought of states making their own drug laws):
Go fuck yourself. To death.
I am sick of the bullshit. Life is hard for most people out there, and damned near impossible for people in chronic pain. Quit making it worse, you allegedly compassionate sons-of-bitches.
Thank you, John.
