Terminal Cancer Patient Dies Amid Medical Marijuana Fight
    #765418 - 01/14/15 01:03 AM (2 years, 2 months ago)

An eastern Iowa man has died of cancer just months after he was convicted for growing medicinal marijuana for personal use.

Dottie Mackenzie confirmed Tuesday that her 49-year-old son, Benton Mackenzie, died Monday at his home in Long Grove, near Davenport.

Benton Mackenzie had been growing marijuana to create medicinal oil to consume and apply to his tumors. He was sentenced in September 2014 to three years of probation for conspiring to grow marijuana.

Iowa has legalized the use of medical marijuana only for intractable epilepsy.

The Quad-City Times reports that the entire family has faced prosecution in the case. Misdemeanor counts against his parents for hosting a drug house were eventually dropped.

Dottie MacKenzie says she has found peace with the situation and her son's death.


SleepAid's Notes: Another stunning example of our law enforcement keeping us safe from the evils of this world.

Signature this, ho.
