Advocates protest the prosecution of leukemia patient Bob Crouse

Posted By on Mon, Aug 22, 2011 at 3:36 PM

Last week we gave a quick shout-out to folks interested in joining a protest at the El Paso County Courthouse in support of Bob Crouse, a 63-year-old leukemia suffer who uses marijuana to treat his symptoms. He's been charged with two felonies, due to a medical-marijuana-related paperwork mix-up.

Coloradans 4 Cannabis Patient Rights' Audrey Hatfield now offers this e-mail update:

I would like to thank everyone for their support at Bob Crouses' protest on Wednesday. We had a great turnout and I appreciate all your help! There will be a motion hearing in October and then the trial will be in December. I will send more information before both dates. Good to see everyone at Westside Wellness yesterday!

While we'll bring you more on Crouse in the next month, here's some photos, courtesy of the Cannabis Therapy Institute and C4CPR.
