Supporters and friends time is now; this is an action alert for June 14, 2013, at 11:00 a.m. to help support Alfred Robinson and the unjust charges against him for the cultivation of cannabis. The hearing will be at Pasco West County Courthouse, 7530 Little Road, New Port Richey, FL. On June 14 Mr. Robinson’s defense will be arguing;
# 1. The search and seizure of Mr. Robinson’s plants was illegal and unconstitutional and a violation of his 4th Amendment Rights, this would result in dismissal of the charges.
# 2. The Defense we will be arguing that cannabis as a schedule I substance is unconstitutional vague, and irrational.
The argument is that Cannabis no longer fits in the definition of a schedule I substance, which is
defined as a substance which has a high potential for abuse and has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States and its use under medical supervision does not meet accepted safety standards.
There are over by over 600,000 people in the U.S. who use legally use cannabis.
These issues could change the laws in Florida once and for all if the judge grants the motion to dismiss. This could potentially be the gateway we need to legalize cannabis in the state of Florida for good. Granting the motion to dismiss would declare that the legislature by keeping cannabis as schedule I substance has violated your rights and that they must do something to change it. Until then cannabis would be an unscheduled substance.
Ladies and Gentlemen the time is now to act. Many people ask what they can do to help this cause, well this is it, support your fellow patients who are unfortunately facing criminal charges as a result of these absurd drug laws.
In addition, we would like everyone to call the Pasco county State Attorney, Bernie McCabe at 727-847-8158, on Tuesday, June 11th. Tell them you don’t want them to prosecute people like Alfred Robinson who are using cannabis for legitimate medical reasons. Let them know you believe it is waste of your tax dollars and you urge them to dismiss the case. Thank you for your time and attention and I urge every one of you will take action.
