I strongly disagree with The Daily Californian's recent editorial, "High Taxes" (published on Feb. 11, 2011). The Berkeley Patients Group should not have to pay its back taxes.
If sick citizens do not have to pay taxes on pharmaceutical drugs such as Vicodin or Percocet, then to force citizens and the Berkeley Patients Group to pay taxes on cannabis (marijuana) amounts to discrimination. And for the government to have the power to force them to pay back taxes does not make it right.
