Medical Marijuana Patients of Maui, We Need Your Help!
On September 4, 2014, at 8 am, in the Maui County Circuit Court, they will be hearing the motion requesting that Brian Murphy, Director of “Patients Without Time,” will be able to put on an affirmative defense!
The Maui County prosecutor's office in the Maui County Police Department is doing everything possible to “Entrap” these defendants. By not allowing the whole truth to come forth in “Patients Without Time's” upcoming trial! We just want to tell the whole truth, they do not want us to be able to talk about how HRS 329 did allow “Patients Without Time” approach, and how the State through the MPD used Entrapment methods to create this case and other cases!
Let The Jury Decide!
Hawai'i's medical marijuana patients demand answers.
For over a decade the State of Hawai'i's official answer to all registered medical marijuana patients questions regarding how to acquire their medicine has been met with silence. The Hawaii Medical Use of Marijuana [Physician and Patient Information] states:
"State law is silent on how a patient obtains his/her marijuana."
This conflict between the Hawai'i lawmakers and Maui's Police Department came into the headlines when the staff of Patients Without Time, which was Maui's largest and longest running medical marijuana patient's co-operative were arrested, in November of 2008. Chief Thomas Phillips stated Maui Police do "not believe in supporting the Medical Marijuana Program in its entirety."
Medical Marijuana Trial has important implications for the future.
Nearly six years after the arrest of the Patients Without time staff, the trial is finally getting ready to begin. An important Motion is scheduled for hearing on Sept. 4, 2014, at 8:30 am in the Circuit court of the Second Circuit Court, State of Hawai'i, located in Wailuku, Maui, Hawai'i.
