  The Story  
Citizen Needs Support! Make a Difference Just By Showing Up!

Her name is Lindy Heise, she is a single mom with two beautiful, thriving daughters. She strives to make her community and planet a better place. We would love to share more about all that and her case, but she is being punished because of this web page so we'll have to cut it short.

Sept. 27th, 2011 she was scheduled to go to trial for growing weed. They we're originally charging her with 11 charges- of which, 9 are felonies, some with mandatory minimum sentences... If convicted, she faced years in prison. We've heard rumors they added more because of this page.

While it is a common story, her case is unique in many respects and presents an opportunity to help make a change to a ignorant, "lose-lose" system. Ms. Heise has been offered a "plea," which is significantly better, in terms of prison time and her attorney is encouraging her to take it. They probably fear the risk involved of going against the officers who have conveniently created a false reality to support their agenda, (bust and incriminate...) as well as loop holes/ grey areas in the Medical Cannabis defense laws.

The reasons some say this case is unique and holds opportunity are as follows:

  • Ms. Heise is among the less than 5% in her county (Jackson), and probably the country, (?) that refuses to take a plea. This is probably why they, "Want to teach her, (and us!) a lesson."

    She has zero criminal record- nada.

    As anyone who has had this done to them would see it, they violated her rights, her children's rights and the rights of her patients. One of her patients reportedly died as a result.

    She wasn't over in the amount of plants she could have. Reportedly, they may argue she was over by a half a plant that was in a curing phase.

    She didn't have more "usable" medicine than was allowed.

    There wasn't any weapons, drugs or money...

    Her attorney filed a motion to "suppress the evidence," because of all the questioning, coercive incrimination tactics and searching that went on during the raid BEFORE they read her Miranda rights. No word on This has already gone to trial- The judge is still deciding.

    What they are calling, "evidence," amounts to very little- Their word/interpretation against hers and a page out of one of her inspiration journals regarding her dream of legalizing MJ, taxing and what our community could create with all that money...

    The fear her attorney reportedly has is they are trying to throw out the laws that would defend her as a registered card holder and grower based on the charge that she gave her friend/patient some medicine before he could make it to the clinic for his card that they were in the process of obtaining. Now, her friend, who was was quadriplegic, has passed away.

    Besides aiding his physical symptoms, mentally and emotionally the Cannabis reportedly did wonders for keeping his spirit hopeful ... he believed he would walk again someday,"I'll be running with my grand kids again."

    Needless to say, after the raid and charges and fear, etc, she was unable to answer his requests for, "help me Lindy ... please bring me something ..."

    Soon he was wanting to die... then he did. "It was painful to watch."

    It is even more infuriating to know it could have been prevented or at the very least, his leaving this physical body process could have been significantly eased.

    The law defends her friend- He had a qualifying, debilitating condition and even with out his card yet- he would still be covered, legally, to use the medicine.

    Apparently not her for providing him with it though, thus being a huge factor in why they get to throw out the laws that would cover her.

    Her heart is probably telling her to not take a plea. For one, she feels - as pretty much every other person who goes thru this does - THEY Selectively violated her and her families rights. Second, she considers herself innocent, definitely undeserving of going to prison. Third- this case is the epitome of our justice system gone wrong. The medical cannabis laws are fuzzy and need defining. She believes that she has a good case to help set some presidence in support of all our basic human rights in trials to come.

    At the very least, if they are going to put her in prison, they should have to work for it and be held accountable for their actions. Too many families broken, good people in the system, behind bars- for what? Weed.

    Maybe sh'e a dreamer - when she looks at her case, wondering what to do, is she left with a feeling of, "If not me, then who? ... if not this case, then who's? ..."

    Hopefully she's willing to take the risk. On her own they'll plow right over her, which is why we're calling out for support and the people with the knowledge and backbone to help her stand up to this system, plant some truth and harvest some justice... hopefully free our weed and our people.

    I am holding a vibration of the outcome being better than I can imagine- Thank you for your time and consideration, Blessings to you and your endeavors.

    Please feel free to pass this on to anyone who may be interested or have ideas. We'll keep this page updated with what we know, try to fill in the blanks and give more details/clarity as can -and- doesn't hurt her too much.
