Minnesota should restore the rights of the individual and of the jury, by passing a law guaranteeing the right to a medical necessity defense for medical marijuana patients charged with marijuana crimes in Minnesota. This history and background shows why the Bill currently in the Minnesota legislature should be adopted into law.
The government (police) can take your property at any time if suspicious, even if you are innocent.
The burden is on you, not them, to do something about getting a court to look at it.
If you do nothing, they keep your property, your money; and you lose; without any court or judge ever even seeing the case.
If you want to do something about it, you need cash for a lawyer and court filing fees. The law provides the government a free lawyer and requires them to pay no court filing fees.
The police agency that targeted you and took you down gets to keep 70% commission on the cash, valuables, your vehicle they seize from you. Could this affect their honesty about their investigation; or, the appearance of propriety?
