Great-Grandma Busted for Pot Possession [NY]

Great-Grandma Busted for Pot Possession
May 1, 2007 - firstcoastnews.com

NEW YORK, NY -- A New York City great-grandmother was in court Monday after being arrested on for possessing marijuana.

But today, there is relief for the 71-year-old after her appearance in Bronx Criminal Court.

Barbara Jackson was charged with buying two dime bags of marijuana a month and a half ago.

Jackson says she's needed it ever since receiving chemotherapy and radiation for colorectal cancer.

"When I left the hospital I weighed 97 pounds and they had given me medication to build my appetite up," said Jackson. "But the medication put me in bed for 3 days and I remembered when I was younger that I had an appetite after smoking so I went to see the sidewalk chemist."

Jackson says it worked.

Without the marijuana she has had nausea, no appetite and is simply unable to eat so since beating the cancer in 1998 she's solved the problem with a smoke.

But last month, Jackson took a walk down a street near her home in the Bronx in search of the drug when she was arrested for possession, brought to the 46th Precinct station house. She says she was kept in handcuffs for 4 hours before being issued a desk appearance ticket.

Her greatest fear was being sent to jail in her condition.

"I could pass out in jail. They're not going to give me any in there! ha!"

Defense Attorney Ron Cuby says medical marijuana for her has literally been a life saver. "Her activity has literally been a matter of life and death and I'm glad that we can move on," he said.

Whats fucked up is.....How does a cop arrest an old fucking lady for 4 hours for weed come on now. How heart less can u really be.

America is fucked up if she goes to jail. Weed is keeping her going.

Grrrrrrrrrr.
I hate to say it but,
More stories like this and Bernies need more publicity. After awhile people will relize that medical mj is good and should be legal.

no , they will realize that it has good potential and maybe " they" might take steps to decriminalize- marijuana will never again in the history of man be LEGALIZED
taxation makes the world go round.
and in regards to the cops " meaning business " i can understand the stance of trying to prevent a mixed message... if you let one old lady off , there are bound to be more ( and the next one might not be a sickly lady in need )

I'm pretty sure this wouldn't have happened if she was white. Those bastard NYC cops are notorious for creating a huge gap in the number of whites vs. minorities arrested for drug charges.
