Leave the good doctor alone

I don’t agree with recent comments concerning your coverage on Feb. 2 of the story concerning Scott Thorpe’s treatment with medical marijuana and your wholesale indictment of Dr. Steven Banister. Tying Scott Thorpe with the good doctor is disgraceful.

I have known Dr. Banister for over 24 years. Dr. Banister is caring and compassionate. He is one of the few doctors who truly cares about his patients. I feel it is only fair and just to leave this man alone. Thank him for choosing to be part of our community. He is a man of impeccable character.
