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."
