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