A Disabled Senior in Buffalo Was Evicted for Medical Cannabis – Slog – The Stranger

From the article:

Last month, John Flickner, a 78-year-old man in a wheelchair, was evicted from his Buffalo, New York, HUD low-income housing apartment because of cannabis. Not for growing or selling it, but because he was using it to treat chronic pain from a 50-year-old skydiving injury.

They did eventually reverse the decision, but this is why my disabled father in law, despite living in literal squalor, refused HUD housing. Pot helped his PTSD, and 3 cervical fusions and and kept is bipolar tamped down to functional levels when no other medication could.

Pot is so damn innocuous. It’s stupid that anyone should have to worry about their housing.
