When a Michigan drug task force raided medical cannabis patient Ginnifer Hency's home, they took everything she owned, including her vibrator. A judge dismissed the charges against Hency, who has multiple sclerosis, but law enforcement officials are keeping a tight grip on her vibrator and other belongings.

Ginnifer Hency.

 

From Raw Story:

 

Hency explained that her neurologist had recommended medical marijuana to treat pain associated with multiple sclerosis. She is also registered in the state of Michigan as a caregiver for five other patients, giving her the ability to distribute medical marijuana.

Hency said that the six ounces in her locked backpack were in compliance with Michigan medical marijuana laws when a drug task force raided her home with four children present.

"when police raided here home, "with four children present"  really ??

"keeping a tight grip on her vibrator" I don't know what to say just yet :dodgyrun:

 

I am happy she was able to win her freedom in court, but angry for all of the emotional, financial, and family damage this must have cost here.

stupid cops could have simply seen her card, recognized here compliancy, and moved on to the heroin problem creeping in from Richmond.

 

does anyone know what brought these thieves to her home in the first place?  I'd like to keep track of those reasons for avoidance myself.

found it:

It began when ______ says she walked into a medical marijuana licensing facility as it was being raided.

"They asked me how much medicine I had in my backpack," she said. "I said six ounces then they said to get a warrant for our house."

btw that snake cop says he didnt take any vibrators

"We were in complete compliance with the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act and they destroyed my house,"

But St. Clair County Sheriff Tim Donnellon says they were not, and added that officers did not take her vibrator and would never have a reason to.

He says aside from that allegation, the task force's actions were justified and par for the course.


didnt she say that it was listed on the seized items list?
ah maybe i'm thinking of the other lady.

If this goes viral it could make it to a spot on the Daily Show, The Nightly Show, or Last Week Tonight.

It has all the classic elements

Jessica Williams could make it epic.

Officer 1---But Maam this vibrator was clearly bought with proceeds from drug money..................

 

Officer 2---Uhh partner how are we going to log this one?.............

 

Officer 1---Ohh this one doesnt get logged. Don't worry I've got it tucked away............

 

Victim---Officer couldnt you just take my husband instead............ :lolu: :bong2: :lolu:

 

All jokes aside this is the kind of ridiculous things they do and then turn around and say they were justified in doing so

yet the judge dismissed the charges............  and they still will not admit their wrong doing............

I bet she would have preferred to NOT discuss her personal vibrator in public, and I have no doubt she is being truthful about leo stealing it. I'm surprised they didn't make some sexual remark to her  concerning its removal.  I've seen first hand this type of police behavior during a  raid. Utube is full of raid vids where the leo is making jokes, stealing, playing video games, abusing innocent people.....how can this madness end?

Kudos to her for stepping up to the plate not only for MMJ issues but forfeiture as well. This is exactly the kind of story we need to advance asset forfeiture reform. I hope she becomes the Rosa Parks of asset forfeiture reform. If she has a funding account of some sort, I'd throw a few bucks her way. Kinda sad that we need a vibrator to propell reform, but let's face it, this case will likely get lots of attention for that reason, so ride the wave that comes, and let's make the most of it. It might be huge.

I have it; this is our client. There are many items taken that were not listed on any tabulation.

They don't do that ... do they  :bong7bp:

I wish I could say that they don't but unfortunately in a minority of our cases, there are things missing from tabulations. This is usually jewelry or personal items like this that don't get listed. Rarely does it ever eventually show up, and there is little recourse. That is one of the purest and most blatant abuses of the forfeiture system, one that thankfully happens rarely. The rarity doesn't help those to whom it happens, however.
