    Vet Gets Back on VA Program, Patient Jailed for Growing

    in News

    Laprill O’Brien is a registered medical marijuana patient who has beat cancer twice and suffers from manic bipolar disorder. On the morning of July 7, 2014 her home in Diamond Bar was raided by police because they were growing marijuana. Ms. O’Brien was held in jail for five days and her children were taken by CPS.


     


    Although they have gotten their children back, she and her husband, Rick Gromoll have been charged with illegal cultivation with their next court date set for April 23 in Pomona. As the show’s first guests, Laprill and Rick will reveal the horrors that happened that day, how it has affected their family and how their court case is proceeding.


     


    Wondering whether the VA directive stating veterans who use medicinal marijuana should not be kick out of their pain management programs is being implemented? Then meet Ken Whitemire, a veteran receiving services from the Loma Linda VA Hospital for chronic pain related to service connected injuries to his back and neck. He had been kicked out of his pain management program because of his use of medicinal marijuana.


     


    On Monday, March 30 he went back to his pain management doctor with the new directive in hand and became the first medical marijuana veteran to be reinstated into a pain management program as a result of the new directive. What happened when Ken confronted his VA doctor is remarkable, astounding and ever so invigorating.
