The USA Hemp Museum, Richard M. Davis, founder, curator, hempologist, is pleased to introduce you to a hemp hero, Luke Scarmazzo.
This courageous young hemp warrior has a few medical marijuana buyers clubs in California that provide safe medicine to people with doctor's notes in a state where the people already voted hemp legal.
The DEA reports about Luke's case:
"....Section 846-Conspiracy to Distribute Marijuana and Section 841(a)(1)-Distribution of Marijuana. The maximum statutory penalty for Conspiracy to Distribute Marijuana is a minimum mandatory term of imprisonment of ten years, and a maximum term of imprisonment of life; a $4 million dollar fine. The maximum statutory penalty for Distribution of Marijuana is a minimum mandatory term of imprisonment of ten years, and a maximum term of imprisonment of life; a $4 million dollar fine.
This case is the product of an extensive joint investigation conducted by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, Modesto Police Department, Modesto Narcotics Enforcement Team (“MNET”), Stanislaus Drug Enforcement Agency (“SDEA”), and the Internal Revenue Service.
This case is being prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office, Eastern District of California, in Fresno. The charges are only allegations and the defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt."
We are legislated to death. How does one prove themselves innocent when no real crime has been committed? How is it a crime to supply effective medicine to sick people for substantially less than prescription drugs?
If Luke owned or worked in a pharmacy, he could sell folks medicine that kills people. Instead, he chose to supply hemp medicine from which there is not one known case of death other than murder by government.
More on Luke in future posts, but by way of introduction, here are the webeos about Medical Marijuana on 60 Minutes that includes a discussion of his case and a webeo of his tune about being a hemp business man.
