Marion "Mollie" Fry #15840-097
Dublin FCI
5764 8th St. Camp Parks
Dublin, CA 94568

Physician Dr. Mollie Fry and her husband, attorney Dale Schafer, began serving 5 year sentences on May 2, 2011 for cultivating medical marijuana in a home garden that never had more than 44 plants at a time.  However, the federal government added up the number of plants grown in the seasons between 2001 and 2005 and charged the couple with growing 100 or more plants, which carries a 5-year mandatory minimum sentence.  The couple spent more than six years of litigation and three years of appeals for charges of manufacturing and conspiracy to manufacture and distribute cannabis.

Dr. Fry, a breast cancer survivor who had gone through a radical mastectomy, grew her own medicine throughout her illness, surgery, and chemotherapy.   Schafer suffers from hemophilia and failed back syndrome, is under constant care, and also medicated with cannabis legally.

The judge wouldn’t allow any medical evidence. They wouldn't let us tell the jury I was sick, or that I was a doctor.  They wouldn’t allow that I was helping sick patients. Ironically, two years before the raid, local authorities asked me to tell them who of my patients were 'really' sick, and who wasn't." I told them it wasn't my job to police my patients, and that everyone who came to me had legitimate health issues. They have treated us like criminals.

Cannabis is proven medicine. Why would the state of California create laws based on what the people want, and then allow the federal Government to override them?  I had cancer, we were growing medicine. I was helping people.
