Medical marijuana caregiver dies in police custody

One of Montana's first medical marijuana caregivers has died during a prison transfer in federal custody. He was being transferred due his worsening medical problems, and after mouths of delays was finally moved to a federal prison more properly equipped to handle his condition, but he never made it.

68-year-old Richard Flor, a Vietnam veteran, was sentenced to five years in prison earlier this year on drug related charges during some spring medical marijuana raids.

His family ran a dispensary out of their home, and Flor was a co-owner of Montana Cannabis. His wife and son were also sentenced to federal prison for their involvement in the business, but his daughter fought for a lighter sentence due her serious health problems.

2. Eric Holder and the DoJ

Able to lock up a Vietnam vet with health problems, and through neglect kill him...but cannot bring corrupt bankers and a racist sheriff to justice!

Should have just kept Gonzales or given it back to Ashcroft...as much good as Holder has done!!!
