Federal Sentencing of Five Legal Medical Marijuana Users Next Week

WSJ Team October 4, 2012 1

The Feds will be sentencing five people next week who were found guilty of possession or selling of marijuana.  The five were operating legally under their state laws but were arrested and tried under federal laws.

Two Detroit area men (Gerald Lee Duval, 52; and his son Jeremy Duval 30) were both arrested by DEA officials in 2011.  The two men grew marijuana for medical use and distribution to dispensaries (both legal under their state laws).  They were charged with cultivation, maintaining a place to cultivate, and distribution.  They were found guilty and will be sentenced at 3:00 p.m. on Monday, October 1st.  The judge in the case is U.S. District Court Judge David M. Lawson.

Three medical caregivers and patients will be sentenced at 8::45 a.m. on October 4th.  The three Grand Rapids area people were raided and charged with possession, cultivation and conspiracy to cultivate.  The three people (John Marcinkewciz, 42: Shelly Waldon 42; and Jaycob Montague 26) all took plea bargains.  The judge in the case is US District Court Judge Robert Bell.

The DEA under Obama has made over 200 SWAT style raids during the last 4 years and indicted over 70 people using marijuana legally under their state laws.
