Our friend Scott has been fighting a medical marijuana case in Orange County since 2010. The D.A. was unable to proceed on July 17th, so the case has been dropped and re-filed. Scott will be re-arraigned on felony charges on Wednesday, July 23rd and needs to raise $1500 for bail by that time or he will be put in jail.
Scott is a horse trainer who was paralyzed from the waist down in a farm equipment accident. Due to sheer determination in physical therapy, he defied his doctor's predictions and is able to walk today. He credits cannabis (marijuana) for his ability to tolerate pain, digest food, and counteract the effects of the damage to his internal organs from the accident.
Scott & his co-defendant are both legtimiate California medical cannabis patients in compliance with the voter initative Proposition 215. He is a member of both Orange County NORML and The Human Solution.
