Cathy Jordan Sues Sheriff

Cathy Jordan Sues Sheriff

Ms. Jordan has been suffering from this disease from 1986 and consumes marijuana for medical purposes.
On February 15, 2013 police raided her home and confiscated 23 medical marijuana plants. Those plants were being cultivated for Ms. Jordan by her husband Robert Jordan.

Just a few days before, legislators introduced the Cathy Jordan Medical Cannabis Act, according to which use of cannabis by people diagnosed with serious debilitating conditions must be physician-supervised.

On April 2, 2013 the Manatee County State Attorney`s office declined prosecution of Jordan`s family. But the Sheriff`s department refused to return the confiscated marijuana. So Cathy and Robert filed a law suit against the Sheriff to prove they have a legal right to grow and possess medical marijuana under Florida law.
