Crouse's MMJ trial delayed, advocates still protest

Posted By on Mon, Feb 27, 2012 at 3:09 PM

Today, local medical-marijuana patient and leukemia sufferer Bob Crouse was set to begin his trial on charges of possession and distribution of marijuana. (See more on his full story here.) Instead it was delayed, again, until June.

Despite this, the people responded. Advocates like Mark Slaugh, with the Colorado Springs Medical Cannabis Council, and Audrey Hatfield, with Coloradans 4 Cannabis Patient Rights, have had Crouse's back throughout, and drawn others to the cause.

We've documented previous protests — including one held at his house, with foreclosure approaching — and today's was no different. Standing in front of the El Paso County Courthouse, in an icy wind, roughly 30 people physically objected to District Attorney Dan May's prosecution of the patient, drawing a plethora of supportive honks from the drivers-by.

Main supporter Audrey Hatfield is on the left.
