Action alert - NYT promotes propaganda

The NYT posts a really snarky editorial on medical marijuana. While they pay lip service to the positive aspects, they give much more weight to the flawed studies that wrongly suggest it has no medicinal benefit. Let's not let them get away this prohibition pushing propaganda unremarked.

Send a letter to the editor and set him straight. Letters should be under 200 words and focus on only one or two points. For help in framing your points, see medical marijuana pro and con and this article on how science is skewed to fuel prohibition. For help in composing your LTE, see also the Media Awareness Project's excellent activism center.

As they say at MAP, "It's not what others do it's what YOU do."
