BOISE, Idaho

A woman advocating for changing Idaho’s marijuana laws at a rally in Boise is now facing misdemeanor charges.

The Idaho Statesman reports (http://is.gd/RlmlAz ) Serra Frank, who uses marijuana for medical reasons, had planned on smoking pot in public as a protest on Friday afternoon. But officers stopper her before she lit up.

Frank is director of the Mom Squad at Moms for Marijuana International.

Frank, who has interstitial cystitis, a painful bladder condition, says she wants Idaho to legalize medical marijuana. Frank chose to stay in Idaho and fight for legalization, while her stepdaughter and the girl’s father moved to California, so the family could try cannabis-based treatments for an illness the girl has developed.

After the rally, Frank was cited with possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia, then released. She is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 19.
