Originally published via The Daily Bell: Government agents got a tip that a Kansas man literally dying of terminal cancer was self-medicating with cannabis to ease his excruciating pain. They leapt into action to save the day and deliver justice to the criminal good and hard.
As much a problem here is the hospital in the story. Their own cowardice and authoritarianism led to siccing the police on this guy in the first place.
When you're angry at the police for enforcing tyranny, never forget the problem begins with whoever is mobilizing the police against you in the first place.
the hospital is the worst place to be when you’re in pain. i could fill a book with just a few of my hospital horror stories. idk if it’s diff in other countries, but in the US it’s almost as if hospital staff torture ppl in pain on purpose--it’s psychopathic.
