Just 3 percent of people with stage 4 pancreatic cancer will be alive after five years, but cops still saw fit to raid a terminally ill cancer patient’s belongings in his hospital room for marijuana.
In live footage shared by Nolan Sousley, cops from the Bolivar Police Department in Missouri can be seen searching Sousley’s belongings where he was hospitalized at Citizens Memorial Hospital.
Sousley told the Bolivar Herald-Free Press that security had come into his room saying they smelled marijuana and asked to search his belongings. When Sousley refused, several cops came into his room to search his bags.
“I had some capsules that had some THC oil in them. I took them outside in the parking lot,” Sousley, can be heard telling officers in the video.
Sousley reminded the cops that medical marijuana will soon be legal in the state. The officer responded, “It’s still illegal.”
“But I don’t have time to wait for that,” Sousley responded “Man, what would you do? Tell me what you’d do.”
