Why Cops Searched This Cancer Patient’s Hospital Room | NowThis

Cops searched the hospital room of a man with stage 4 cancer over cannabis — and they didn’t even find any. » Subscribe to NowThis: …


  1. First off it doesn’t matter if weed helps him or not it’s illegal to have weed in the hospital

  2. I couldn’t be an officer! Something like this would be an eye roller for me. “Have a nice night sir and get well soon,” is what I would have said once I heard “stage…”

  3. “Officers! Hurry! We have a man dying of cancer using medical marijuana (not smoked, it’s an oil). Hurry and arrest him so he can be put in the electric chair for putting everyone’s life in danger!!”

  4. It's a sad day in America when a man dying from cancer gets the cops called on him for smoking/ingesting marijuana so that he can get some kind of relief from the pain.

  5. Let's not gloss over the fact that this was also an unconstitutional search. A personal has a reasonable expectation of privacy in a hospital room, and even more so in his personal belongings. An officer may conduct a frisk for weapons if he has reasonable articulable suspicion that a person is both armed and dangerous (Terry v. Ohio), however, a search of a person's belongings requires a search warrant unless it's pursuant to lawful arrest. These officers exercised poor judgement at best, and a flagrant violation of this patient's 4th amendment rights at worst.

  6. Statistics dictate that one of these strutting uniformed animals will contract cancer. How will they choose to treat their pain and nausea?

  7. "As we continued our search, we saw the suspect reach under his bed sheet. Fearing for our safety, we had no alternative but to open fire"

  8. I'm sorry this happened to this dear man. It makes me so angry when the sick are harassed this way! Shame on those heartless cops. Leave the man alone! Marijuana saved my life. It eased my nausea, so I could keep some food down. Without it, I would have starved to death! I'm still at least 20 pounds under weight but I'm alive! I also use it for chronic pain. I'm glad it's legal for me to use in my state. If I were a healthy person, I wouldn't be using it. In 2012, I almost died of an accidental O.D. of my Rx meds. I was over medicated, & became confused. I couldn't recall when or how many pills I had taken. I was found the next am, unresponsive. After 2 doses of Narcan in the ambulance, the medic, & God, saved my life! I'll take weed over dangerous opiates any day of the week! (I still require some medication but I take very little;just enough to get by.)

  9. If there is any justice to be found in this country, those terrorist 🐷 tyrants will be executed like all terrorists should be executed. And that includes the disgusting little worm who called the 🐷🐷 in the first place. Not a one of them are worth the oxygen it takes to keep them alive.

  10. So when a want to be cop calls the other police department says somebody smelled marijuana you're going to deprive every human right and constitutional right of any individual… based on hearsay with no evidence… the cop with the the black hat needs to be drug test that he looks like he's Stone

  11. It's gotten to be where the non-smokers are strange and alien like. Get the fock away from them. Move away.

  12. There’s even the nurse who seems concerned you might handcuff her patient.

    BTW can someone elaborate on the cops explanation that he’s allowed to search his things because he’s on private property? I’ve had police come to my residence, which to my understanding is private property, and without an arrest/search warrant they’re obligated to act as far as I provide consent for them to do so. I feel like I’m missing something here? Also, does the bald officer do something to his bodycam right when the nurse asks about a warrant? These two officers seem to sketchy to me.

  13. If I was a cop and got that call I would not answer it. Let another cop answer it. Also what douchebag in the hospital called the cops on a stage 4 cancer patient who had already told his doctors and nurses that he takes CBD oil NOT SMOKING MARIJUANA!

  14. The law is the law. The police uphold the law. I smoke weed all the time, but if something is illegal, don’t get caught. That’s how the legal system works.
