West Coast man John Robert Patrick was elated outside the Greymouth district court after being discharged without conviction for supplying medicinal cannabis to thousands of sick people.
John is what is commonly referred to as a "green fairy", a term used to describe cannabis suppliers and/or growers who network to help patients on compassionate grounds.
Judge Jane Farish said she would discharge Patrick without conviction and wished him well to become a registered supplier of medicinal cannabis, which he hope to do in future.
Here at MindFuel we would like to congratulate John on his discharge without conviction and wish him well in his future medicinal cannabis operation. We would also like to congratulate Judge Jane Farish for showing wisdom and compassion in her approach to this case. She is a role model for how other judges on how they can be more compassionate while retaining their integrity until we get this out of date law reformed and cannabis legalized.
