Lois and Mr. Lynch

Good segment tonight with Stacey Warde from Rogue Voice. Stacey is pretty enraged over Charles Lynch being sentenced to a year and one day in prison for running a medical marijuana dispensary in Morro Bay. The silver lining was that Judge Wu could have imposed a much harsher sentence, but he opted to ignore prosecutors’ pleas and not sentence Lynch to five years, or longer.

Still, it’s pretty outrageous for Lynch to spend even one day in prison. The man and his family have suffered enough at the hands of Sheriff Hedges. The voters of California have made it clear that we want medical marijuana. The federal government refuses to listen to us. Lynch is paying the price.

The surprising part of the conversation tonight was the number of callers directing their venom towards Cong. Lois Capps, a former nurse. The callers (and Stacey) seemed to believe that Capps should at least issue a statement on the verdict and take a position on medical marijuana. According to Stacey, she has declined.

So it’s a sad day for those of us who believe in the rights of the individual. Alcohol is far, far worse than marijuana and yet drinking is such an integral part of our culture. Seems to be a double standard. How much taxpayer was wasted prosecuting Charles Lynch? For what? For what?
