    Arrested for 2 Joints, Legal Medical Marijuana Patient Misses Her Chemo


    GWINN, MICHIGAN - A 59 yr old legal medical marijuana patient with cancer was forced to miss her chemo therapy treatment because her TWO JOINTS weren't in a locked container.


    See this post and read it yourself. The I shared her post below. 



    "Some of the bruises that the "arresting officer" put on me yesterday...over 2 joints that were in a container, in my purse...not in a "locked container". And then jailed.


    Suffice it to say, that a system who allows...condones...perpetuates...the manhandling of 59 year old LEGAL medical marijuana patient grammas, with stomach cancers and life threatening heart conditions...locking them up for almost 24 hours in a glassed-in cell...open toilet, with guards and other inmates walking by...on a cement slab...nothing to eat (that one is permitted, without a stomach)...and denied their dose of chemotherapy (now a missed dose, with new tumors on the lung and spine)...and then their heart medications (until noon the next day, after the family blew up their phones)...is a FUCKED UP SYTEM INDEED.


    Did I mention the meth head in the kitty corner glassed-in cell who continuosly masturbated while staring at me...and when the guards would go by now and then, to tell him to "put it away", he proceeded to smear some shit in with the rest of what he had on the glass.


    Yup...2 joints."
