Larry Burgess II commented on POW420 ~ Share Your Stories 2017-04-29 12:37:10 -0700My name is Larry L Burgess II. I live in New Albany Kansas and was arrested last week for using and making my own cannabis oil for my non epileptic seizures.
I have suffered from these seizures for over 8 years now. I have been using cannabis for my seizures medically since 2014. Cannabis is the only medicine that has lessened my seizures and allowed me to get my life back.
I was turned in by a member of the community and was served a search warrant with over 10 sheriff’s deputies with AR 15s in a town with less than 60 people.
An unarmed disabled 40 year old male. I am now having multiple seizures daily now that I can’t medicate myself with cannabis oil capsules.
If you can help me here is my info:
