Tuesday May 23rd, was the second court hearing following the arrest of Jodie and Marc Emery at the airport, as well as Erin & Chris Goodwin the following day in court and Britney Guerra in Hamilton. These arrests and raids were done as part of “Project Gator” focusing on what was Cannabis Culture.
At the first court hearing (April 21st) it was nice to see the “Cannabis Culture 5” reconnecting after over a month of no communication with each other. For better or for worse, the court had not gone through the evidence and prepared it to be turned over to the accused and their lawyers.
This weeks’ court case was the same. It was nice for everyone to connect and chat, but no progress was made in moving the court case forward. The defense is still waiting for the evidence to be released, then they can start preparing.
The next court case was set for Thursday June 15th at 9AM in room 117 with the evidence against the accused expected to be released them.
