This page has a small list of drug war victims, like this:
Shirley Dorsey, 56 yrs old, California (1991): Rather than being compelled to testify against her 70-year-old boyfriend (Byron Stamate) for cultivating the medicinal cannabis she depended upon to help control her crippling back pain, Shirley Dorsey committed suicide. She saw it as the only way to prevent the forfeiture of their home and property. Despite her suicide, Stamate was sentenced to 9 months prison, and his home, cottage, and $177,000 life savings were seized.
What I would like to see is something similar for chronic pain patients… Anyone interested?
