    Thanks for what you do, Russ (long time no see either). I was doing some research on cannabis therapy for seizures (my daughter’s best friend has been suffering with them for years, and now they’ve gotten very bad) – when I ran across this article. It’s one of those stories which stop you dead in your tracks to make you think about life – and what can happen if you are a medical cannabis pt/caregiver.

    All I can say is -if you do participate in a medical cannabis program LEGALLY, you need to take every step possible to protect yourself and your family from LEO that are on the very edge of that “Thin Blue Line”. You can take from that statement what you desire, but please – use common sense and make sure your bases are covered.

    The worst I have seen yet was on a new show called Law Man with Steven Segall (he is a real sheriff now). On I think the 2nd episode they taser a guy that is handcuffed and in the back of a police car because he kicked their window out. They had no reason to arrest him in the first place which is why he became angry and kicked the window. I don’t know how you can justify tasering a handcuffed suspect on the ground let alone in the back of a police car. They show this on national T.V. as if it isn’t a big deal. A few years ago this would have been buried to avoid a brutality case. Now it is so common place to most people they show it with pride. I am convinced these shows are used to condition us.

    On a side note there is a show on Discovery that follows Howe and Howe tech. They build the worlds smallest tank which they are selling to swat teams. It is small enough to fit through a small door. Now you don’t only have to worry about your door getting kicked in but seeing a tank drive through it instead.

    This goes along with a story from TN, 84yr old man driving too slow on freeway, doesnt see police in rearview, second car pulls in front and stops him, they drag him out of the car let him fall on his face, broke his nose and knocked him out cold for 30min. Took him to the hospital after cuffing and stuffing him and the reason he was going slow and wasn’t pulling over, he was suffering a mild heart attack, the whole time, still when he got to the hospital! He is a retired school teacher but still works as a sub, My wife works with him! Hitting closer and closer to home!

    These issues are all due to the Drug War! Cops feel they have to be so aggressive and search every car, they believe everyone is a suspect before they even look at the situation, again all due to the War on Drugs! Protecting and serving. Ha, we need someone to protect us from the cops! Police state is a coming? No its here we live in it!

    Absolutely appalling.
    So whats next? Should cops just go ahead and teargas a building in which someone has called 911 for help in a heart attack?
    If the cops are so cowardly that they feel the use of tasers is justified in such a situation, why the hell did they become cops!? Didn’t they know when they joined that it is a very dangerous job? Or did they join figuring that they can just whip out their tasers whenever they feel even slightly nervous?
    To any cop that may read this: Next time you find yourself so scared that you want to use DEADLY force before such force is justified, please take a second, just one, to consider your actions…

    This is a situation that could certainly be one of us. Epilepsy is one of the disorders approved for cannabis therapy. In fact, I know from personal experience that NOTHING that big Pharm has can stop a seizure as fast. Had that been an epileptic, his family would be suing for wrongful death.
