(courtesy NORML Foundation,
Auburn, CA: The trial
of Steve and Michele Kubby is expected to resume on Tuesday, August 15
after over a year of delays.
Steve Kubby, a 1998 Libertarian
gubernatorial candidate in California, was arrested with his wife on January
19, 1999 after Placer County sheriffs raided their Tahoe home and confiscated
265 marijuana plants and computer records and hardware. The prosecution
contends that the Kubbys were planning on selling the marijuana to the
Oakland Cannabis Buyers' Cooperative. The Kubbys, both medical marijuana
patients, deny the allegations, saying they worked with the OCBC to insure
their marijuana garden complied with local guidelines.
"My wife and I are victims
of those who seek to gut Proposition 215 and punish those behind it," Steve
Kubby said. "We are but two of dozens of patients and caregivers
who acted in good faith following the passage of Prop. 215 and have been
cynically arrested by narcotics agents who seek to invalidate the voters'
will and the present state law."
