BACKGROUND
Bob Crouse is a 63-year-old leukemia patient being prosecuted by El Paso
County. He is charged with two felonies (cultivation and distribution),
even though the amount of medicine and plants he possessed was well within
the limits recommended by his physician and allowed by the Colorado
Constitution, Article XVIII, Section 14 (Colorado’s Medical Marijuana Law).

Bob was using cannabis medicine to treat the symptoms of his illness and
also to attack the cancer directly. Numerous studies have shown that
cannabis has anti-tumor effects. Bob was using a treatment called “Phoenix
Tears”, developed by a Canadian patient Rick Simpson (see
www.phoenixtears.ca). This treatment requires several ounces of raw plant
material to make one gram of medicine. Bob said that the Phoenix Tears
treatment seemed to have a remarkable effect on his cancer. He said he
could actually feel it attacking the cancer in his body like “scrubbing
bubbles.”

DONATE TO THE BOB CROUSE LEGAL DEFENSE FUND
Please donate to the Bob Crouse Legal Defense Fund to help him hire a
private attorney. Bob has not been able to work since he was diagnosed with
leukemia 4 years ago. And he has also had to take care of his 90-year-old
mother at the same time. The stress of his arrest and prosecution has
drained his energy even further. Please help Bob stand up for all cancer
patients in El Paso County and help him fight for his right to treat
himself with cannabis, the safest therapeutically active substance known to
man.

Donations to the Bob Crouse Legal Defense Fund should be made directly to
Bob. Checks should be written to Bob Crouse and can be mailed to:

    It’s shameful the way our government treats those who are legitimately ill and who have a valid Dr.’s referral / prescription for the use of medical marijuana. The prohibition of marijuana is ignorant and archaic and I stand in support of Mr. Crouse and am against the unfair prosecution of him.

    OMG Reading this story makes me sick!! How could they go after this poor man who is seriously fighting for his life while also caring for his 90 yr.old Mother! I live in California & am friends with Dr Mollie Fry & her husband Dale Schaffer who are currently doing 5 years each in seperate federal prisons for simply trying to help sick people!! It’s terrible what our federal goverment is doing to sick patients who choose to use the medicine that grows naturally in our yards I know out here in CA we got together groups to organize how we could help Dale & Mollie & also we got carpools together to get as many people as possible at all of their court apperances..It helped Dale & Mollie to realize they had alot of support from the community but it also showed the judge that ALOT of people KNEW how WRONG our federal goverment was for prosecuting these innocent people. Also their kids have been awesome at getting their story out there. I hope you can do that for Bob Crouse & continue to get his story out there to the people.I will be following this story & will keep you, Bob, in my thoughts & prayers.
