    Hello Everyone,
    I wanted to share this video with everyone. This video talks about the US Vs Duval case. This case is about Jeremy and Jerry Lee Duval. These two men were growing medical marijuana in the state of Michigan and was in complete compliance with Michigan's marijuana laws. Everything was completely legal and was even confirmed by the Monroe county Sheriff's department. Even though the Sheriff's department was okaying the Duval's to grow marijuana, they were also part of a DEA program called, "Operation HEMP." This program is funded by the DEA and is used to catch any marijuana growers; legal or illegal in the state. Both Jerry Lee and Jeremy Duval both pleaded "Not Guilty" and went to trial head-to-head with the Federal government. On April 20th, 2012, Jeremy was sentenced to 5 years in prison and Jerry Lee was sentenced 10 years in prison. They are one of the few caregivers that did not take a plea bargain, which mean they can appeal their case to a higher court. If this case makes it to the Supreme Court, they can potentially end the prohibition on marijuana federally. The goal of The Prisoners of the Marijuana War is to publicize this case as much as possible, so they will be able to win their appeal. Also, if we raise enough money, we will also be able to travel the country and record other caregiver's stories about how the DEA wrongfully prosecuted them for following their state's laws. Please help us by spreading the word of this case and spreading this youtube video around. Listed below is a link to our fundraising page so we will be able to travel the country and make this documentary. Thank you all for your time and together, we could make a huge difference.

    Updated video, Jerry Lee Duval Self surrendering in Devens, MA on June 11th, 2013 to serve his 10 year sentence for being a medical marijuana patient. 

    This is a petition to pardon Jerry Lee from prison.
    Please share these videos and the petition with your friends, family and coworkers! It's a shame that good, hardworking, tax paying and law abiding citizens get locked up as if they were criminals, let's not forget medical patients!

    Fighting every day the government hypocrisy ignoring state laws and imprisoning upstanding citizens
  6. wow look at how many pills he has to take when he can't use marijuana. oh my god this is fucking sickening. fuck the goddamn government. this guy is a criminal in their eyes. what the fucking fuck. 
  7. Did this guy have 144 plants just for glaucoma?  144 plants is a lot.  That kind of puts a target on your back from the DEA no matter where you are located.
  8. "Rizzo30" Jerry Lee Duval was a medical marijuana patient, not a caregiver. His son Jeremy Duval and his daughter Ashley Duval were his caregivers. Jerry Lee is a farmer and he had almost 100 acres, so he allowed his children to grow on his property. One greenhouse was Ashley's and the other was Jeremy's. The DEA raided them and indicted Jerry Lee and Jeremy; no one knows why Ashley wasn't indicted. They both pleaded "Not Guilty" and went to trial for 14 days and on April 20th, 2013 they were found guilty; Jeremy was sentence 5 years mandatory and Jerry Lee got 10 years mandatory. Jerry Lee is just a patient and they are treating him like a criminal. Jeremy is not a criminal either because he was following Michigan's Medical Marijuana Laws. Even though Ashley and Jeremy had 144 plants (72 each), they were in complete compliance with Michigan's laws and was even verified by the Monroe County Sheriff's Department, even though they came back out with the DEA under Operation HEMP. In my opinion, that's borderline entrapment. 
    "Wuidd420" Thank you for your support and your comment. We are all pretty outraged too. We are just trying to spread the word about the federal government is hurting innocent people. Share this to your friends and family please.
