Letter: Wellness center will improve quality of life

To the editor:

We all enjoy the quality of life in Williams. That is why we choose to live here. The quality of life in will be better when The Route 66 Wellness Center is allowed to operate in the core of uptown Williams.

We residents, our friends, neighbors and relatives voted and passed the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act. We all have someone in our lives touched by cancer and other debilitating illnesses covered by the Act. The issue is the quality of life for you, your friends, relatives and neighbors who seek relief from terrible afflictions.

The quality of life can be improved for those who suffer debilitating illnesses. The medical community agrees. A patient may choose between alternative therapy of medical cannabis or terrifically expensive traditional prescriptions like painkillers. Traditional pharmacy medications have troubling side effects. The use of medical marijuana is an alternative path that will contribute positively to the quality of life for our citizens suffering from the 13 debilitating illnesses covered by the Act.

The silent minority votes in Williams. The silent minority includes medical marijuana card carrying residents. They want the City Council's approval of the pending conditional use permit for The Route 66 Wellness Center. I urge the silent minority, their friends and relatives to call each councilman today. Tell them you want to alleviate the daily suffering that our friends, neighbors and relatives experience by giving the alternative medical path a chance. Let your elected councilmen know you want them to approve Cannabis Research Group's conditional use permit to operate The Route 66 Wellness Center in the city core. Attend the council meeting Thursday night at 7 pm. Support the quality of life you enjoy in Williams.
