Paul Cody a wheelchair bound medical cannabis patient was dragged out of his wheelchair and stuffed into a police vehicle during the Operation Green Rx raids of 9/9/9 as can be viewed in this video: http://vimeo.com/6537468

Terrie Best, the Stop Operation Green Rx campaign manager reached out to Mr. Cody's representative on the San Diego City Council for a statement about his treatment. Here is what Councilmember Todd Gloria had to say:

Councilmember Gloria believes that every citizen should be treated with respect. People who believe they have been treated unfairly by the San Diego Police Department should contact the Citizens Review Board on Police Practices for an appropriate investigation. The Citizens Review Board on Police Practices can be reached at 619-236-6296.

Call the board and sign the Petition to Stop Operation Green Rx and the Raids and Continued bias directed at medical cannabis patients in San Diego.

  1. It feels like not accomodating a wheelchair dependent person is a violation of the Americans with Disabilties Act (ADA). Clearly the police need training in this area. I was disappointed that Mr. Gloria decided not to take a leadership role here.

    Thanks for the post and the mention!
