CopBlock Co-Founder Ademo Freeman was sentenced to nine months in the Warren County Correctional Facility on April 10th. He is due out in seven months, having been credited for time already served. The judge in his case, Judge Robert S. Fischer, agreed with Freeman that he should be allowed to put whatever substance in his body he chooses And yet he still sentenced him to prison.
Note: If you have videos, stories, upcoming events/protests, or personal interactions with the police (and/or “justice” system) that you would like to share, send them to us and we will do everything we can to bring it to the attention of the world. In addition, you can visit the Nevada Cop Block resources section for information and links to the rights of citizens when dealing with police, during which you should always be filming.
In the “Land of the Free,” this is not freedom. Freeman has a medical prescription from Colorado and Ohio is supposedly a medical marijuana state, as well. In addition, Ohio will have full legalization on this year’s ballot. Unfortunately though, it will not pass in time to afford my friend any clemency.
Isn’t it unfortunate that we live in a world where a person has a medical prescription for cannabis, he is in a medically legal state, and even the sad excuse we call a president is saying to legalize marijuana, yet people are still be locked up for it? A world where police still make a big PR propaganda spectacle of marijuana arrests like they are stopping crime in some way by arresting peaceful people for engaging in freedom.
Well, on the right is an evidence photo they didn’t have the sack to tout on their Facebook page. (Where they post almost all marijuana busts with the evidence on the hood of their cars surrounded by all their gear.)
The sad joke that is Ohio’s medical marijuana law doesn’t even recognize prescriptions from Colorado’s doctors. There is no reciprocity built into it like there are with, gun laws, driving laws, and just about any other laws that span several states. Who enacted this stupid version of a medical law?
Governor John Kasich that’s who! All by himself with no input from Ohio voters, he just said one day after Issue 3 failed (which would’ve effectively legalized marijuana in Ohio if it weren’t for a smear campaign against it,) “This is what you got now, tough shit if you don’t like it!” Did I mention the Ohio government agencies charged with rolling out this program have until September 2018 to get it done? Well, September is only a couple of months away, and they are talking about it like it wont be done in time. Guess who’s gonna suffer if it doesn’t roll out in time? Adult users and medical patients alike! Do you think there will be any consequences for the agencies responsible? Of course not!
When do we lose the hypocrisy and just legalize it across the board? Why are we waiting for so-called lawmakers and leaders to get their cut before we just take our freedom back? They got billions of dollars already. They chose to spend it on law enforcement so in my opinion they shouldn’t get shit! Don’t they work for us? Isn’t weed acceptable to like 80% of the constituents they work for? Why are we letting them drag their asses to quibble over what we obviously want!? Which is legal weed now!
Meanwhile, my friend sits in prison with murderers and rapists until this state and country comes to its senses on this issue. Meanwhile, hundreds of medical cannabis users face jail every time they have to pick up their medicine. Meanwhile, millions of motorists are accosted by Ohio State Patrol and other blue line thugs and forced into non consensual searches all because some asshole in a hat says he smells marijuana.
The drug war is a failure! WHEN DOES IT END!?
