Tad’s winning entry told a different kind of struggle, but it is a very important story indeed!
I would like a medical marijuana card because once the court system charges me, I wont be able to afford my renewal.
For helping expose the corrupt AZ zero tolerance law & the dog and pony circus show this state is getting away with! I’m going to be sentenced for DUID/DUI for simply smoking my medicine the day before. Why should I win a free card? Because when my renewal comes in February, I wont be able to afford it because I will be paying for MADD Classes, A Breathalyzer, $5000 in fines…I could sure use a little break. My 3rd pretrial is set for Dec 23rd – Happy holidays compliments of the state of Arizona! With a card I will still be able to continue to legally use marijuana to treat my pain.
