Legals fees for @alchemyofawesome and family

This is the FREE ALCHEMY FUND! My name is Shelby and I have arranged this fundraiser on behalf of Leo Bailey. The sole purpose of this fundraiser is to seek support for legal and living expenses for Leo Bailey, his father and brother They have all been arrested and charged with multiple felonies related to a cannabis grow bust and are now being held with bail exceeding $2,000,000 each. Leo is being held without bail. As we all know, marijuana is recreationally legal in California and has been medically legal in this state since 1996. So why are they still treating growers like criminals running a drug enterprise? Murderers get more reasonable bail terms. 

Without serious fundraising support, they will be another victim to the war on drugs and the evil Prop64 has done in California. Our legal team estimates that we are looking at fees in excess of $75,000 to retain defense for all parties involved. As of right now, they are facing serious prison time and no realistic opportunity for bail. In addition to the mounting legal expenditures, we are at a loss as to how we will keep up on the mortgage and bills while everyone is locked up and completely powerless. 

Leo Bailey, alchemyofawesome, humbly hopes that his friends in the community will step up to help him at the lowest point in his life. He has been there for so many others when they needed him and now we pray that karma will come back around.

Leo's elderly father, on-the-spectrum brother, and childhood best friend have all been wrapped up in this as co-conspirators. We have been in constant contact with legal representation discussing all possible avenues and the short of it... the DA wants to make an example of them. We are desperate to find any means to make sure these guys have a fair shot at a defense and reasonable sentencing. All proceeds will be used on legal defense and rebuilding the lives of these 4 men. 

Thank you to everyone who took the time to read that. Whether you can donate or not, please just keep us all in your positive thoughts. This has rocked an entire family and we are VERY scared for the futures of our loved ones.
