North Carolina deputies side with Dorr, admit that legal pharmaceuticals are the real problem
Prior to his arrest, Dorr created a Change.org petition directed at North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory, who earlier this year failed to bring a floor debate on the Enact Medical Cannabis Act, also known as N.C. 84. The bill, which was rejected by North Carolina's House Rules Committee back in February, would have legalized possession and use of medical marijuana in the state.
"Living in a shadow or being looked upon as something less than a law abiding citizen is no longer acceptable for those who are just that, but use marijuana to treat a disability," states Dorr in his petition. "If you are an honorable person who uses marijuana or cannabis medically, speak out about this issue."
