Medical Marijuana patients home raided!
June 21, 2016
By Norman Plude
I am a medical marijuana patient. On June 8th The Police raided my home and confiscated my Medical Cannabis illegally. I use the whole plant to medicate all the way down to the roots. RAW not cooked. I cannot get this medication from any dispensary here in Connecticut. I am now having very severe back spasms again and I am in a great deal of pain. Connecticut Medical Marijuana Patients are allowed to possess “The combined amount of marijuana possessed by the qualifying patient and the primary caregiver for palliative use does not exceed an amount of usable marijuana reasonably necessary to ensure uninterrupted availability for a period of one month, as determined by the Department of Consumer Protection pursuant to regulations” as stated in House Bill No. 5389. That bill defines Marijuana as,
"Marijuana" means marijuana, as defined in section 21a-240 of the general statutes; “
“Marijuana” means all parts of any plant, or species of the genus cannabis or any infra specific taxon thereof, whether growing or not; the seeds thereof; the resin extracted from any part of the plant; and every compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation of such plant, its seeds or resin. It does not include the mature stalks of such plant, fiber produced from such stalks, oil or cake made from the seeds of such plant, any other compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture or preparation of such mature stalks, except the resin extracted therefrom, fiber, oil, or cake, or the sterilized seed of such plant which is incapable of germination. Included are cannabinon, cannabinol or cannabidiol and chemical compounds which are similar to cannabinon, cannabinol or cannabidiol in chemical structure or which are similar thereto in physiological effect, and which show a like potential for abuse, which are controlled substances under this chapter unless modified;
As you can see Marijuana is marijuana “whether growing or not”, this is very important!
1) Marijuana is illegal for the criminal if he has a garden and growing it or they have the dried plant in their possession.
2) Marijuana is legal for the Medical Marijuana patient if he has a garden and growing it or they have the dried plant in their possession.
The point here is that marijuana is the same for the criminal as it is for the patient. Marijuana is marijuana.
That said, If a criminal grows “Marijuana” it’s illegal and using the same definition from section 21a-240 of
it now becomes legal for the patient to “Grow”.
My Civil Rights may have been violated.
I have not been charged with any crime but yet
1) My 1st amendment right was violated when the police destroyed my offering to Buddha in my garden, a clone to bring good health to my medication.
2) My 2nd amendment right was violated when the removed my firearms.
My 4th amendment right was violated when a search warrant should not be issued with false information as this was a legal medical grow according to the definition of marijuana in section 21a-240 of the general statutes
If you’re an Attorney who handles Civil Rights cases
Please contact me. This is important to any Medical Marijuana patients in Connecticut as it allows us to grow and the Police are raiding our homes and taking our life changing medication. I have been for the most part a prisoner in my own home since June 8th, 2016.
THIS CAN HAPPEN TO YOU ALSO!
IF YOU DO NOT USE A DISPENSORY FOU ARE BEING PROFILED AS A GROWER!
If you are arrested remember
· There is no reference to patient grow rights in this Bill.
When I got my card there were no dispensaries so I had to grow or buy from the black market – my testimony in Hartford at a Senate hearing on April 5th, 2016 has a recorded video of me stating I am a grower. I can’t get the medication at the dispensaries because they do not offer live plant.
