NUG Travel Writer In Custody with No Bail – Write Scotty in Jail

A message from Dion Markgraaff, Editor of Nug Magazine and former San Diego ASA Chapter Coordinator to San Diego Americans for Safe Access Members:

Another member of NUG Magazine has had problems with our local law enforcement. Our travel writer Brian “Scotty B.” Whytsell ends up in jail with no bail.
While in the Vons parking lot in Carlsbad, law enforcement contacted Scotty and a friend of his.

The officer asked if either were on probation or parole. Scotty was, as a result of a marijuana conviction in 2009.

Despite Scotty possessing a physician’s medical cannabis recommendation, the cops searched his parked car based on his Fourth Amendment waiver, found his medicine, and arrested Scotty. The cops in Scotty’s car a half pound of different strains of cannabis and twelve clones, all of which is half the amount his recommendation allows him to posess.

Initially his bail was set at $50,000 which he posted, but when Scotty went to his court hearing the following week, the Judge bucketed him on a “probation hold” from a previous cannabis conviction and Scotty has been in custody going on 2 months now.
Well over 2/3’s of NUG writers have been arrested by local police for our medicine.

Scotty would love it if you would write him in jail while he sits through the court process.
