Earlier this year, a judge in rural Washington who called the state’s medical marijuana law “an absolute joke” and “an excuse to be loaded all the time” ordered a stepfather, Julian Robinson, to stay at least a quarter-mile away from the teenagers he has helped rear for the past 13 years, because he is a medical marijuana patient.
That means Robinson can’t be around the children, even though they live in his home
near Castle Rock, Wash., with his wife and their four younger children, reports Gene Johnson of The Associated Press
Robinson said he sometimes stays with friends, or rolls out a foam sleeping pad in his neighbor’s horse trailer. He said he misses baseball games and church services with the kids.
