The other day we informed you that the government plans to kill Steve Kubby for being dependent on medical marijuana in order to survive. An overview provides:
Kubby suffers from a fatal condition known as malignant pheochromocytoma. That he has survived by use of marijuana is a topic of intense curiosity by medical experts, who are not allowed to experiment with the politically incorrect but potentially life saving medication.
After being arrested on drug charges in the late 90s, Kubby eventually went into exile in Canada in the spring of 2001. Today, he is under a Canadian departure order that will deliver him to the U.S. authorities on January 12. The Kubbys plan to appeal this order three days prior to the extradition date. If forcibly returned to the United States, Kubby will be immediately jailed and deprived of the medication which keeps him alive.
Kubby has twice been held behind bars for a few days, and he nearly died both times. This time, it is expected that he would spend 90 days in jail. According to his family, this will almost certainly prove fatal to Kubby.
Today was the hearing date, and Michele Kubby just sent us the following:
Judge in Kubby Hearing has taken case under advisement and will issue a decision at a later date.
“Considering that this was a routine request to issue a temporary stay while the court considers our motion, I have lost all remaining faith in the court system and can only plead with people who hear about our situation to call, call and call again until those Ministers who are responsible fix this legal nightmare,” said Mrs. Kubby.
“Phone calls to the Ministers of Immigration, Health, Justice and Public Safety may be our only hope now,” added Mrs. Kubby.
They will be sending out a press release with greater detail and we promise to keep you informed on the situation. In the mean time, the pertinent contact information is here.
