Larissa Cohen610 Farmington AvenueHartford, CT 06105July 8, 2012William M. Rubenstein, Commissioner Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection165 Capitol AvenueHartford, CT 06106Dear Mr. Rubenstein:Asthma is a debilitating medical condition that affects many residents of Connecticut. The passage of Public Act No. 12-55 has made it possible to look into a new technique for treating and controllingasthma. The state of Connecticut Department of Public Health has been very progressive in designingtreatment plans for its large population of asthmatic residents.Tetrahydrocannabinol is a potent anti-inflammatory that works remarkably well as a bronchodilator.Having more treatment options will help everyone in the struggle to control asthma symptoms.In accordance with the available research, statewide vision for asthma care, and Public Act No. 12-55, I propose to allow the palliative use of marijuana to treat asthma. Thank you for your time andconsideration with this matter.Respectfully,Larissa CohenAsthma PatientResident of the State of Connecticut
