Endless Summer Raids..entrapment?

I am a 46 year old woman who has learned about the beneficial effects of marijuana while on chemotherapy. So the police went and fraudulently obtained a medical marijuana card and spent 6 months specifically targeting medical marijuana patients and providers. I have proof of this. I was caught up in the mix of those arrested. Now I am having my life destroyed. At age 46 I have no criminal record and was under the clear impression this was legal under California law. Not supposed to be happening? Well it is happening. To me and many others hear in San Diego. If you are thinking what a waste of taxpayer money this is, I have more. The chemotherapy triggered an autoimmune disease called Sjoegrens, for which I must receive regular medical treatment. And my immune system is so destroyed by this and the Hepatitis C and the chemotherapy, that I get sick very easily. I catch any minor cold that I am exposed to and where others are in bed for 2-3 days, I will be bedridden for a good two weeks. I am very afraid that if I am put in a jail with many other people I could easily catch something and die. I do not mean to be dramatic but I truly do believe I am facing a death sentence by the San Diego Court. I am really frightened that I am medically unable to withstand what I am facing. I hate to risk sounding like I am exaggerating but I am actually very serious. I have chronic pain from a serious car accident, I am into the 4th and final stage of cirrhosis. Will putting me in prison for medical marijuana benefit society in any way? Is it worth the taxpayer money of incarceration and the additional taxpayer money of medical care and a potential liver transplant. Will they be responsible enough to make sure to provide my 3rd skin cancer surgery? Oh yes, I have skin cancer, too. What about if the hepatitis C that triggered my cirrhosis comes back? Will they stay on top of that. Do you, the taxpayer, believe that this is a good use of your taxpayer money? Is the satisfaction these people receive from destroying my life a good exchange for a full time school teacher for one year? I do not believe so. And I really need your help. Honestly, I am extremely scared. If each person reading this who felt at all like what happened to me is not okay, I would so much appreciate you taking the time to call anybody in your local government and tell them about it. All their phone numbers are online. Thank you so much for taking your time if you do. IF YOU DO NOT LIKE YOUR TAXPAYER MONEY WASTED THIS WAY PLEASE CONTACT THE DISTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICE (619-531-4040) AND ASK THEM TO DROP THE CASE AGAINST DONNA LAMBERT
