Idaho marijuana activist raided, children taken


Lindsey Rinehart.

Lindsey and Josh Rinehart support medical marijuana legalization via Compassionate Idaho, with Lindsey using pot to treat her multiple sclerosis. Last week officers received a report from a school involving an eleven-year-old who is said to have eaten some marijuana and felt ill afterward.The eleven-year-old wasn’t one of the Rineharts’ kids, but cops say they subsequently traced the weed to the family’s home, where they say they found pot and paraphernalia in areas where her kids could get access to them.” Hence, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare took custody of the kids.
And now Project SAM, a national anti-marijuana organization, is getting involved and pointing to new laws in nearby Colorado as part of the problem. Denver Westword has more.
