Manitoba medical marijuana advocate convicted and sentenced: R v. Krieger 2009 MBQB 321

Grant Krieger was convicted by jury of one count of possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking and one count of possession of proceeds of crime. Said the judge:

“I have the difficult task of determining a fit and just sentence. It is a difficult task because Mr. Krieger is not like most of the drug offenders that we sentence in this court. While he openly admits that he was in the business of selling marihuana for a number of years, he was not doing so for financial gain. Rather, he was motivated by compassion for those who, like him, suffer debilitating symptoms from disease for which marihuana can provide relief. While Mr. Krieger’s actions were illegal, many, perhaps most, would say they are not immoral. Indeed he had no real victims.”
