Hey, this is truly a medical marijuana case

From the Ukiah Daily Journal,

Bail for Memo and Mark Parker was reduced during a Friday hearing, after their attorney, Katie Lerman, failed to get the two released on their own recognizance.
The brothers have been jailed since Monday, when a search warrant was served at their residences, and more than 400 marijuana plants and 170 pounds of processed marijuana were seized.

"I believe this is a 215 (medical marijuana) case," Lerman said. "I believe the evidence is overwhelming in my clients' defense."

Mendocino Superior Court Judge Cindee Mayfield reduced the two Ukiah residents' bail from $150,000 each to $75,000 each.

Yes, one client had a headache and the other had a splinter. The 400 plants were simply to take the edge off the pain.
