"A Question of Compassion: An AIDS/Cancer Patient Explores Medical Marijuana" was best-selling author's Peter McWilliams' final work. Peter died at the age of 50 because he was denied access to his life-saving cannabis, but he dedicated his last project so that other patients would know about this wonderful plant. Peter was a renowned author, self-publisher of over 40 books and in later years an outspoken activist for legalization and repeal of prohibition of marijuana.
