Dear Mr. Olsen:
     Thank you for your letter of November 26, 1995 and the
enclosed materials.  I am glad that you  took the time to share
your thoughts with me.
     As a doctor, I understand the terrible suffering experienced
by victims of diseases such as AIDS  and cancer.  Many patients
find it difficult that their loss of appetite results in
significant weight loss,  often threatening their health.
     Earlier this year, Congressman Barney Frank of Massachusetts
introduced legislation to permit the  therapeutic use of
marijuana for certain patients.  Under current law, marijuana is
considered a Class  I drug and cannot be prescribed for any
medical condition.  There are, however, several prescription
drugs that use the same active ingredient as is found in
marijuana.  I will be sure to keep your support  for Congressman
Frank’s legislation in mind if it comes before the House for
     Thank you again for your letter.  I hope to hear from you
again on other issues of mutual concern.
