L.A. Confidential: City Funds Go Up In Smoke
Former Medical Marijuana Caregiver Dies in Custody
68-year-old Richard Flor, a Vietnam veteran who was sentenced to five years in prison earlier this year on drug related charges stemming from medical marijuana raids In Montana, has died during a transfer to federal custody. The transfer was precipitated by Richard’s worsening health.
Richard was finally being transferred after months of delays during which his health deteriorated. He had been diagnosed with dementia and depression, and he had recently suffered two heart attacks.
Montana Cannabis Industry Association President Chris Lindsey was quoted as saying, “It’s sad that Richard was in prison at all for being a caregiver, especially when such a large number of people think marijuana should be available as an option for sick patients. In affect he got a life sentence which is tragic and really kind of hard to imagine. My heart goes out to his family and I can only hope that our government will end the war on marijuana and come up with a better solution than throwing people like Richard into prison.”
So federal prohibition laws kill another person in a long line of death in misery going back decades; how long must this madness continue? How many people need to die for no reason?
How many must die to keep the profits flowing for Big Pharma?
The scariest thing about it all is that there are many powerful people who sleep perfectly well at night while millions suffer. It is chilling to say the least. These people cannot be allowed to keep their power. They have to be replaced by people with souls who actually care about what happens to their fellow human beings.
It is up to all of you to register and vote against those who don’t fight for your interests.
