George Zimmerman sues Trayvon Martin's family for $100m

George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer cleared of murdering an unarmed black teenager in one of Florida’s most high-profile criminal cases, launched a $100m lawsuit on Wednesday against the dead boy’s family, their lawyer and prosecutors.

...

In a 36-page lawsuit circulated by his lawyers, Zimmerman claims his reputation was destroyed by the “malicious prosecution” and alleges that the state’s attorney, Angela Corey, and her team of prosecutors relied on a witness who falsely claimed to be Martin’s girlfriend to testify against him.

He further alleges that Benjamin Crump, the civil rights attorney who has represented Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, since their son’s death, defames him in Crump’s recent book Open Season: Legalized Genocide of Colored People.

Evidence presented during Zimmerman’s trial included a recording of a call to the Sanford police department in which Zimmerman, now 36, said he was following Trayvon, who was on his way back to his father’s girlfriend’s house with Skittles and a soft drink he had just bought at a nearby gas station. “OK, we don’t need you to do that,” a dispatcher told Zimmerman.

According to the lawsuit filed by the Boca Raton-based attorney Larry Klayman, founder of the conservative legal activist group Judicial Watch, his client now lives in constant fear of attack and “often receives death threats when he appears in public”. It adds that he suffers from “depression and PTSD”....

Baby steps, meanwhile lives of otherwise productive citizens are blighted, sometimes severely. The federal government doesn't seem capable of dealing with cannabis in a realistic manner but things are changing on the ground, state by state, court case by court case.

'A Drop of Cannabis Oil Could Land This Pennsylvania Woman in Jail'
When Melissa Gass, a mother of five in central Pennsylvania, was 10, she was in a car crash, and her head slammed into the windshield. Ever since, she’s suffered seizures, which occur with weekly and sometimes daily frequency and are life-threatening. When one is coming on, she feels a throbbing pain in the back left side of her brain; the next thing she knows, she’s waking up outside with her face on the ground—or in an intensive care unit at a hospital, often having urinated or defecated on herself. Someone, either a medical professional or a family member if she’s at home, has to inject diazepam gel into her rectum to keep her alive.

But medical marijuana has been legal in Pennsylvania since 2016, and Gass, 42, obtained a doctor’s certification for it last February, court records show. She started taking a small amount—a dot of cannabis oil in a spoonful of peanut butter three times a day, or a drop on her gums if she felt an attack coming on—and the seizures all but stopped. She got her life back. She no longer self-medicated with benzodiazepines, sleeping pills, and alcohol, which are far more addictive and dangerous, especially when taken together. She was able to be the mom she wanted to be again. And she was ready to go back to work at the nursing home where, before the seizures became too debilitating, she’d long been employed as a caretaker, she says.

Then, in September, her Lebanon County probation officer told her that due to a new court policy there, she had until the end of the month to stop using marijuana or else she might go to jail.

Gass is on probation because back in 2016, she hit her husband of 20 years. According to court records, she does not remember the fight because at the time, she was mixing drugs to ease her symptoms. She was arrested for simple assault. Her husband asked prosecutors not to press charges, to no avail, he says. The couple made up and remain together.

But as part of Gass’ ongoing court supervision, her probation officer informed her, she would now have to get drug-tested for marijuana. That meant no cannabis oil, even though it is legal—and even though, soon after she was forced to stop taking it, she had more than 20 seizures in two weeks, she says.

...

The argument that many parole and probation authorities make for this seeming contradiction is that regardless of whether marijuana has been legalized in their state, it remains illegal at the federal level, and that if you’re under government supervision for committing a crime, you should at the very least have to follow all state and federal laws. Some parole and probation officials also point out that they drug-test their own officers, so the people they oversee should be held to at least the same standard.

“I don’t know of any paroling authorities who are casual about marijuana—it’s part of their institutional culture, and old habits are hard to break,” said Edward E. Rhine, a former corrections official in multiple states and an expert on parole at the Robina Institute of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice at the University of Minnesota Law School. “Obviously most people couldn’t conceive of marijuana being allowed inside a prison, even if that prison is in a state where it has been legalized.”

A handful of states where marijuana is now legal, though, have taken action to make it available to people on probation or parole. Arizona’s supreme court ruled in 2015 that medical marijuana patients cannot be arrested or jailed for taking their medication, even if they are under court supervision. An Oregon appeals court in 2018 issued a similar decision.

We have a problems arresting cannabidiol and other cannabis product peddlers. All of a sudden they have left the specs unclear. Though cannabis is illegal, they may not arrest teens with a couple of joints. Unless they do something else to get arrested, then they have to collect that evidence.
