The same Modesto friend convinced authorities to release the drugs to the bail bond company, which shipped them to Houston, Blanton said. Still, hes suffering without his medical marijuana, which he takes for depression and anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and sleep apnea, among other things, he said. Hes allowed to return to California, and can get more pot once home, but he intends to stay in Texas a few more weeks. Hes had marijuana advocacy groups, including Campaign for Compassion , reach out to him in support, and Blanton plans to join the groups for a rally at the state Capitol in Austin early next month. http://www.theactproject.com/postannabellebarnes/2017/01/03/certain-physical-activities-can-affect-the-gop-temporarily-for-example-standing-on-your-head-or-lifting-heavy-objects/http://www.expertselfpublishing.com/dylanyoungrock/2017/01/03/despite-these-precautions-you-or-your-child-still-may-develop-pink-eye/He misjudged Texas when he decided to carry the pot to his granddaughter, Blanton said. He had read about Texas medical pot laws on the internet and was encouraged by initiatives being brought forth by advocates. I thought, look, even in their own Legislature they have people who want to bring it into law. He said he viewed the state as being on the same track as California, just behind by a few years. So I thought, theyre open-minded, would understand whats going on with my granddaughter. I thought, Im not doing anything wrong. Blantons been told it could be six months before hes back in court. As for what he could face if convicted, I dont know exactly, they didnt tell me, he said.
