As some of you may have already heard, my fiance has been given an ultimatum by the Court where he is on probation: give up your driving privileges or forfeit your medical marijuana "privileges." At the time of his plea, he had his card and the Judge agreed to continue to allow him to use marijuana. Apparently, his probation officer is not a fan of that so she filed a petition to amend his probation as stated above and the same Judge signed it.
On the one hand, I am furious. His medical conditions include: 1)Hepatitis C; 2) Cachexia (Wasting Sydrome); and 3) Severe Nausea. Prior to obtaining his card we were in the hospital at least three times by dehydration. He is 6'6" and weighed less than 140 lbs. He couldn't eat or drink anything and vomitted all the time. Now, with marijuana, he can eat, has gained at least 35-40 lbs., and is doing soooo much better.
I believe the Court, intentionally or not, is setting him up for failure. Without the marijuana and driving privileges, he cannot complete the terms and conditions of his probation. Without the marijuana, he will end up back in the hospital, or God forbid, worse.
Thankfully, I am an attorney and know many. We CAN fight this. I have a connection with Fox 2 News, and he interested. Now the question is: do we try to appeal to the senses of his probation officer and the Judge quietly and hope to get them to change this? Or do we become the test case and show them what this community stands for and won't stand for?? I only hope that Eric won't suffer the consequences if we choose the latter...HELP!
