JCT: I met Virginia Vidal at the Treating Yourself MedPot
Expo in Toronto who had also been busted for Possession of
19 grams of herb in Peterborough! She had just had triplets
and was using medpot for post-natal discomfort. 19 grams for
the cop to want to give the new mother a criminal record.
Guess he didn't want her kids going to Disneyland.
But being busted in Peterborough was lucky for Virginia for
she's being prosecuted by the sharp Crown Attorney Mauro
DiCarlo. So Derek turned her on to the Self-Defence BENO-
POLCOA kits. She'd filed her Quash, Stay and Return of
Controlled Substance motions so Mauro recognized the forms
and knew it was going to be another monster pain for a
medical user over less than an ounce!
She went in as presentable as possible, gave good suit, and
was treated very nicely by both the Crown and the judge. The
Crown asked the Court for 2 months in which she would get
her MMAR forms signed by a doctor and when she faxed that to
him, he would withdraw her charge and she need never return
to court! The judge gave her 4 months to establish her
medical need! From her previous desperation, she came away
thrilled at the result.
She's promised to get us a transcript where the judge
queried whether the doctor's signature on the MMAR would be
enough or whether she needed her exemption. Just the
completed application would establish her medical need
sufficiently! Yeehaa for those people busted while waiting
for an exemption after their doctor had signed.
And once again, Mr. DiCarlo is treating his medical users as
he should and saving his bosses a small fortune in wasted
efforts going after someone who's going to end up exempted
anyway. Guess he has no more stomach for fighting it out
with the sick because all reports seem to be good-mouthing
him recently. Good-mouthing a Crown? When he plays the game
right, why not? He's shown sense and mercy to more accused
than any other Crown plus he got Rob Glabais's guilty plea
on the 3,000-plant grow.
Lucky medical users if they get busted in Peterborough and
find out about us instead of getting a lawyer to plead them
guilty though I feel Mauro should feel a little guilty
taking pleas from sick people because they have lawyers who
don't know any better.
So the triplets may yet end up going to Disneyland after
mama gets her exemption form signed! What great news. Would
it were that easy every time to have charges dropped by
establishing medical need a la Hitzig 170.
