|According to bystanders, the man pictured at right allegedly used the sign he is holding in the photo to strike a pro-marijuana protester in the head. Police refused to do anything about the incident, smilingly saying it “looked like an accident.”|
A violent attack by an anti-marijuana individual on a pro-marijuana protester at a medical cannabis rally in Michigan last week was ignored and laughed off by police who saw the incident, according to eyewitnesses.
The attack, which occurred at the medical marijuana rally at the state capitol in Lansing on Wednesday, happened to medical marijuana patient/activist “J.,” according to eyewitnesses.
“He got smacked in the head (purposely) by the guy with the ‘Say No To A Pothead Society’ sign and told he ‘could now go to hell,’ ” activist Zig Zag Man wrote in a Facebook note.
“J. had his sign raised higher than the idiot and when J. put his sign down to rest (sort of heavy), the anti-pothead swung his sign and hit J. in the face and twisted his head out of his normal ‘range of motion’ with the titanium plate holding his neck to his spine (he even had his neck brace on),” Zig Zag Man wrote.
“J. got over to the cop (adrenalin rush) and said ‘I want him arrested for assault,’ and the cop smiled and said, ‘Looked like an accident to me!’ “
