Police return medical marijuana [CO]

Police return medical marijuana
August 29, 2005 - rockymountainnews.com/

Along with feeling redemption, Timothy Haas was also feeling queasy today as he picked up a plastic bag containing half an ounce of marijuana at the Denver Police Department.

"I just want to go home and lie down," Haas said. "The marijuana will calm me down."

Denver police returned the marijuana to Haas after authorities confiscated the drugs a month ago. Haas is prescribed to use medical marijuana for post traumatic syndrome and post concussion syndrome.

He suffered the ailments when he was attacked with a bat and stabbed three times in an attempted robbery at his wine business in 2001. Haas started using medical marijuana to deal with the pain three years ago.

In late July, Haas said he was stopped for a security check at Denver Health Medical Center when he visited his brother who was in an automobile accident. Haas showed his medical papers to police when they found marijuana in his backpack.

The drugs were taken away and Haas was never charged.

Robert Corry Jr., Haas' attorney, said he had threatened to file a lawsuit if the marijuana was not returned to his client. The two were happy after leaving the police department.

"This shows Colorado's medical marijuana program is alive and well," said Robert Corry Jr., Haas' attorney. "He wishes he didn't have to go through a lawyer to get it back."

Colorado is one of 10 states to allow people with certain medical conditions to use and grow marijuana with a doctor's approval.

Haas said the marijuana helps him deal with his muscle spasms and the constant vibrations he feels in his spine from his injury.

"I'm the voice for all the terminally ill and legitimate marijuana users who can't get out of bed," Haas said. "It's the last thing a terminal man wants to go through."
