John Marcinkewicz and Shelley Waldron-The Grand Rapids, Mi., couple were licensed medical marijuana caregivers and patients who were charged with growing 100 or more marijuana plants. The two requested to have the charges dismissed under state law, but were denied. They later pleaded guilty, meanwhile contending that they acted legally under state law. John was sentenced to five years and Shelley to 18 months. They couple’s appellate attorney, Andrew Greenlee, requested that they be released on bond during the appeals process, citing their strong ties to the community, but was denied. In his appeal, Greenlee will argue that the indictment was “fatally flawed” because the pair’s marijuana cultivation is legal under Michigan law, and, therefore, the federal courts had no jurisdiction in the case. In anmlive.comarticle, John was quoted saying that he is prepared to go to prison, but that marijuana prohibition is coming to an end across the country. The two remain in prison as they prepare for their appeal.
