Jerry Duval, Medical Marijuana Patient, Headed To Same Federal Prison Facility As Boston Bomber

In the face of public pressure, the Department of Justice will allow Jerry Duval, a seriously ill medical marijuana patient, to serve his 10-year sentence for marijuana-related offenses in a federal facility capable of meeting his medical needs, Duval told HuffPost Monday. The DOJ originally sentenced Duval to standard federal prison despite a judge's recommendation that his medical condition be taken into account. Duval had been barred from presenting his medical condition, or any discussion of state law, during his trial, according to court documents.

Duval, whose juvenile diabetes led to both a kidney and a pancreas transplant, also lives with glaucoma and neuropathy. He has a strict medical regime, which prior to his arrest had included medical marijuana. That regime will now be the responsibility of taxpayers and the Federal Medical Center in Devens, Mass., where Duval may stay in a cell similar to the one currently occupied by Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev: a 10-by-10 foot steel room. The DOJ confirmed its decision to move Duval to the federal medical facility rather than standard federal prison, and Duval has been "ordered to surrender" and report to the facility by June 11.
