Please view video linked below from Ms. Linda Harrah, at the Memphis, Tennessee Penal Farm:
On Wednesday, October 16th, Ms. Linda Harrah visited TKP Thorne Peters at the Penal Farm in Memphis, TN, where he has been incarcerated since April 3, 2018.
They were not allowed personal visitation however, they were able to view and speak to each other through video conference, according to Ms. Linda Harrah.
Judge William Acree, a “traveling Judge” for the State of Tennessee, ceded the case. D.A. Amy Weirich did not want the trial to proceed, so therefore the trial for “selling pot on the Courthouse steps” is NOT going to Trial. Note letter from TBI below on cannabis prosecution policy currently in place.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, (TBI), investigation into Courthouse corruption would have to be approved by D.A. Amy Weirich first, which will not happen.
The above letter, sent out by TBI, states that the testing in marijuana cases will “only be performed on felony amounts of plant material and at District Attorney’s request if needed for trial.”
Slowly, small amounts of Marijuana, usually an ounce or less, are being ignored, and/or thrown out of Court and not prosecuted. That is a win for the general public who only seeks to purchase a small amount of black market product. However, it still leaves many people behind in harms way of the law, because in fact, the illegality of Marijuana is still very much alive. Those who have grown their own plants, or purchased an amount that could be attributed to “trafficking” can be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Many people are languishing in prison right now over a plant that NEVER should have been made illegal to begin with! The fight isn’t over, in fact it’s only just begun!
For those reasons, a major Federal Repeal is necessary and must be pursued. As well, “no mens rea” should apply to all personal cases in every State. We are in fact at war and we must continue to fight until the battle is won!
Don’t forget the ones, our Brothers and Sisters, who have been taken from their families and forced into a cage like animals, for using the Cannabis plant, or any other plant!
