Comments

"When they tell you that this is going to be needed, marijuana for debilitating medical conditions, that is absolutely false," said Sheriff Rutherford in an interview with First Coast News in July.


"What they don't tell you about is the definition of debilitating medical disease turns out to be anything that a doctor want to prescribe it for, anything," said Rutherford.
