Tetraplegic Cannabis User Freed Today
Danuiel Clark, the tetraplegic jailed for medicinal use of cannabis, was released from jail at 7.30 this morning.
Clark served 11 out of his sentenced 21 days in prison.
Clark was picked up from prison by his spokesperson Nandor Tanczos, the Green Party candidate for Auckland Central.
Tanczos said Clark is having a medical check up and will be meeting with a lawyer to discuss his legal options this afternoon.
An eagle eyed reader of the Scoop last Thursday saw amazing similarities between 'Tetraplegic Jailed For Medicinal Cannabis' and a story running along the same lines on the BBC website (bbc.co.uk).
The Green Party has taken up the case of a tetraplegic man who was imprisoned for growing six cannabis plants for medicinal purposes.
