The Case of Medical Marijuana Dr. David Allen

27

Johnny 1 brought this case to my attention about a week ago. Previous to Johnny 1’s e-mail, I had never heard of the curious case of Dr. David Allen. Dr. Allen was once a prominent doctor at Singing River Hospital in Pascagoula, Mississippi. In November 2007, he moved to California to open a medical marijuana evaluation facility. In February 2009, drug agents raided his home in Escatawpa, Mississippi after receiving a tip that he was growing marijuana on his property (see the attached story, which is the most current one I could find).

“There was marijuana being grown there, there were drugs being shipped in and out of there for profit and that is why the place has been seized,” Narcotics Task Force Commander Curtis Spiers said. Dr. Allen was released from the county jail in April on $100,000 bail. While out on bail, Dr. David Allen was the subject of a five month long investigation, after agents received another tip that Dr. Allen was trying to intimidate witnesses, trying to get them to leave the state or lie for him under oath. “The witnesses in this case were offered money, they were offered jobs, offered free expense flights to another state.” said Narcotics Task Force Commander Curtis Spiers.

While Dr. David Allen was out on bond, he posted a video on YouTube refuting the claims against him. I could not find this video online, which I suspect was taken off the internet as part of a court order. In high profile cases, the judge can put a gag order in place, in an attempt to keep potential jurors from being influenced. The same thing happened during the 9/11 trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, when video footage of the plane crashing into the Pentagon was not allowed to be released until the trial was over. I don’t know if this is a fact in Dr. David Allen’s case, it is merely conjecture.

It is always interesting to me that most gag orders only apply to the defendant, and not the law enforcement officials or prosecutors that are pursuing a conviction. This case is no different. Dr. Allen is not allowed to tell the public his side of the story. However, Curtis Spiers is allowed to talk to the media all he wants. He spoke out against the YouTube video when he stated, “He’s (David Allen) made allegations that we live and die off of what we seize from people, which is absolutely not true,” Spiers said. “The bottom line is if you are a drug dealer, I cannot only take your drugs away from you, but I can get at you financially and economically; that is going to make it that much harder for you to do your job. Allen is no different than any other drug dealer I would deal with.” If you were a potential juror, and you weren’t allowed to hear from the defendant, but you read quotes like this in the paper every day, how would it affect your decision making process at trial???

Dr. David Allen will remain in jail until a grand jury decides this month if he should remain there until the outcome of his trial. Sadly, this is almost guaranteed at this point. The six felony charges of attempting to bribe and intimidate witnesses carry a maximum penalty of 14 years in prison. At this rate, Dr. David Allen should be preparing for the worst case scenario, as it seems that the State of Mississippi is on a mission to make an example of him.

  1. And i’m glad reading your article. I was very pleased to find this web-site. I wanted to thanks for your time for this nice read!! It’s really a great and useful piece of info.

  2. GreenGuerrillaTV on

    Google, “Treating Yourself issue 22,” for two articles on the Dr. Allen case. Article features crooked cop Lt. Curtis Spiers.

  3. Update to doc’s trial: Today, 2/10/11, the judge threw out 4 charges against Dr. Allen due to lack of evidence. These were the ones that caused his arrest/revoked bond back in December. He sat in jail for 14 months on these stupid trumped up charges! The credibility of the state’s witnesses are dubious at best. The NTF is shown to have trumped up stuff to throw the doc in jail. What a load of crap to do this to him…Now his bond is reset at double the original? He has had no income in all this time??? WHERE is he supposed to get money to get out now? Something smells rotten in this affair!

  4. I wanted to let you know that Dr. Allen is now on trial in Pascagoula, MS. Jury was selected 2/7 and testimony started 2/8. Today is DAY 2 and his sister, brother in law, a reporter for MS Press, NTF agents and a convicted felon have all taken the stand against him. The convict, a former cell mate allegedly, is absolutely a liar! He is telling crap that the doc would never, ever be stupid enough to talk about. Please check out WLOX, Sun Herald and Mississippi press for articles. It is just sickening the stuff coming out of the prosecution…like the doctor “selling marijuana from his farm in his clinic”!!! WTF???

  5. The only thing to do is keep exposing the bullshit and eventually enough people will be sick of the machine .

    I listen harder and longer to candidates that support cannabis.
    anyone in opposition must support the failed drug war
    classifying cannabis as a “dangerous narcotic with no medicinal value” is a hypocritical sword the fed machine wields
    knowing the scientifical data and ignoring this makes the feds an accomplice to murder

    unfortunately the state of misisippi is still in the dark ages
    If I could help in any way i would help Dr Allen , I have never met him and I would gladly give him a couch in my home , I would trust him with my life , a heart surgeon who believes in cannabis as a healing herb
    Im more afraid of the alcholic doctors who are licensed by the state of misissippi
    I live In LA and the fact that LA bureaucrats shut out 600 + cannabis stores in the last few months is ludicrous considering most people around here are out of work or working for criminal wages.

    keep posting the status of the case publicity could help

  6. What the Mississippi press say’s is a lie. Check out land larency I II III IV on youtube. what I need is understanding. I am inocent and I worked my whole life save lives and I bought The Blue Hole with my hard earned money and it’s my childrens prooerty.
    Now I need help reschedule cannabis as a medicine. I need all to ask for pray and allow me to bring this into my defence.

    Sincerely

  7. GreenGuerrilla on

    Youtube “Land Larceny, I-IV” to view four videos about the Dr. David Allen case. I was with him when he was last arrested. The new charges are trumped up.

    GreenGuerrillaTV

  8. Youtube, “Land Larceny II,” GreenGuerrillaTV’s new video about the Dr. David Allen case and the abuse of land seizure laws by Mississippi officials. Article to come in the April issue of Treating Yourself Magazine.
    Support Dr. David Allen and help spotlight criminal cops abuse of authority.

  9. Ya I saw that one too. We will be following this one very closely since it has so many different angles to it. Thanks for the link tho and if you find anything you want us to publish or investigate, just forward it along.

  10. thanks to the internet, information flows freely , globally
    as in bubbas case some information is worthless
    (hey bubba , grab a beer its 10:00am jerry springers on tv”

    some information is priceless
    there was a few glaring points in these articles

    when i went back to research this it vanished

    the point I was trying to make is the censorship of the media
    if you type “marijuana” into google it wont even finish spelling the word .

    last week a judge ordered CHP to return 60 lbs of MMJ
    so try to find a follow up on this article, good luck

    did they return the MMJ?
    or was it destroyed (passed out to variuos judges and clerks)

  11. It’s about time there was someone on this site with commen sense. Bubba, you are a true American. I hate dope smoking homeboys just as much as you do. If you are ever in Washington State and want to have a beer, I got a cold one waiting for you. To Lucy – Fox news is the only accurate news in America. There is reason why they say it is fair and balanced, unlike all the pro-Hussein Obama garbage on the other networks.

  12. FOX NEWS!?!? You say that the facts are wrong, then tell people to go to FOX NEWS? FOX NEWS is the antichrist you conservative loser! How about you back to where you came from Bubba, me and my dope smokin homies already heard enough Republican lies to last a life time. FYI Bubba, when you go the story your dumbass is talking about, it says ‘Sorry this video is not available, please click here to watch other videos….I bet the other videos are some propaganda bullshit from FOX NEWS. Next time you are driving in your car, you should have a few beers first

  13. The link in Johnny’s article is from January 5, 2010. This fox article you are referencing is from November 2009. Maybe you need to listen to your own advice, and learn how to use google. It is crazy that you are trying to shoot down someone’s credability, when you seem to not know what the hell you are talking about.

    You state that the video was taken off by the allen family, but you yourself found it by the time you decided to write another post….Are you such a retard that you don’t even remember your own arguments. Or do you just like to argue with yourself!

  14. “Before his arrests, Allen had worked as a heart surgeon at Singing River Hospital. Hospital officials confirmed he worked there from 1996 to 2001 and then from 2002 to 2007. In November, the Modesto Bee reported Allen had since become a member of a group of doctors in Sacramento, Calif.,”

    Those are the exact words copied and pasted from the above link. If that information is incorrect I apologize, I am only passing along the information that came up when I typed in ‘Dr. David Allen Marijuana’ in a google search. It is interesting that you chose those words, because they are EXACTLY what I typed in to research this case.

    Also, I NEVER said that there were NO other articles about Dr. Allen. I stated “see the attached story, which is the most current one I could find.” That is called a ‘disclaimer,’ which tells other educated people that you should take this information with a grain of salt, and that if you can find a newer article, CONGRATULATIONS.

    Finally, when I say ‘I don’t know if this is a fact in Dr. David Allen’s case, it is merely conjecture,’ that is also a disclaimer. If I was trying to pass it as FACT, I would have stated so. Before you pursue an ‘ad hominem’ style attack, you should read my article thoroughly.

  15. Also, look up Fox40′ article: Abusing California’s Medical Marijuana Laws, specifically directed toward David Allen & his dope smokin homies.

  16. “In November 2007, he moved to California to open a medical marijuana evaluation facility” You wrote. Keep off your pipe long enough to keep the facts straight. If you know how to use Google, look up his name followed by the word marijuana, or mississippi, there are literally dozens and dozens of articles. Obvioulsy if you would have spent the time to research them, you wouldnt sound so ignorant. Gag Order?
    Your speculatiion and conjecter truly show your stupidity. The videos were taken off by the allen team, no orders!

  17. wrong. No person shall be deprived,liberty or property or otherwise penalized for medical reasons.
