Charges were dropped this week (4/20) against Cheryl Miller and her husband Jim for their protest of March 30 during which Jim helped his wife to eat cannabis in the congressional office of California Rep. Jim Rogan. Charged with possession, the Millers could have faced up to six months in jail. The Millers, who are from Pennsylvania, chose to target Rogan for his about face on the medical marijuana issue. Rogan, who had previously supported medical marijuana in the California legislature, voted in favor of anti-med mj HR 372 in committee.
