Handicapped Man’s Wheelchair Seized Over Medical Marijuana

CHBC news reported yesterday that Nyle Nagy, a Kelowna, British Columbia man who lives at the Brookhaven care home, was forcefully removed from his wheelchair and put in bed for a week after manager Adrien Vaughan objected to his legal use of medical marijuana.

“She sent two men over here to take my wheelchair and tell me that I’ve got to stay in this chair for seven days, as a punishment”, Nagy told the TV crew.

“To get rid of my pain and my spasms, that’s the only two reasons I smoke it” said Nagy, who has a license from the Canadian government to smoke marijuana.

The news comes in the wake of a similar abuse case in Vancouver where a diabetic, double-amputee woman died after being evicted for legally smoking medical marijuana.

    I agree with you 300%, to force a man or women out of their wheelchair and into a bed you have to be a monster, especically for the reasons that are posted on the tube, or any other reason at that.I am in a wheelchair because of a farming accident i was in nine years ago, and to me taking away my wheelchair is taking away my will to live. That is my mobility. My wheel chair is my legs. Taking away a wheelchair knowing that the person is confined to it for the rest of their life, and knowing that the wheelchair is their legs in a sense is morally wrong, and just plain fucked up. thats like chaining someone to a bed and torturing them physically and mentally, because thay cant physically cant do anything about it. There should be a law suit filled on the manager and the facility.She should lose her job and hermedical licence. The mental pain of doing that to someone is unbearable. I had my wheelchair sent away for two days to be fixed and i didnt have a replacement and i felt like i wasnt liveing, i was only existing, that is no way to feel in life. My heart goes out to that man andd anyone else in that similar situation. Stay strong and god bless.

    Ok people, this story makes things look very unfair however I did some investigation and found out the facts from Nyle’s siter. She was very forthcoming and concerned that things be safe for her brother. She informed me that the facility takes good care of their patients. She searches for medicine that might help her brother that he can use safely. He has tried several oral preparations which Nyle didnt seem to like as much as smoking. I agree that Nyle needs his meds, however after finding out that there was no one to help him if he dropped his smoke (while lit)putting many people in danger from an out of control fire as Nyle has no way to deal with a fire, it got me thinking.

    SO…..DOES SOMEONE WANT TO HELP NYLE? Be proactive, do something to help this guy and stop beating up people who are just doing their job. Is there someone that will look deeper than this story and volunteer to help Nyle out with his smoking? I am sure there are a few people in that area that could commit to helping him use his medicine. Yes, I am talking about going there and holding it for him, and make sure things are safe.

    You folks that are angry and talking smack about the facilty, staff or family have no idea about the reality here. BTW I was infuriated about the story before I understood the real situation. The media did a one sided story, what a surprise huh?

    So somebody reach out and do something instead of spreading all the hate…..SPREAD THE LOVE. I would do it, but I am in another country.

    Quebec is inbred because they sent over 34000 french and now theres 7.6 million. And new york and the northern states are inbred because they sent over plenty already inbred irish to outnumber the south and win the civil war. The fact is the place people call inbred-the south- is the least inbred of all. ironic aint it!

    I saw Nyles on Monday Sept 7th. His wheelchair has been returned to him…YEA! He has his FREEDOM of MOVEMENT back!!Just a warning to the people who have been calling Brookhaven….They have been giving Nyles’ sister’s(in Saskatchewan) phone number to people who have been complaining. As a result, she has been recieving numerous NASTY calls and a couple of DEATH THREATS!!!! PLEASE! Stop with these type of calls…They HURT OUR CAUSE NOT HELP!!! Be sure you are calling a BC number(area code 250)
    not a Saskatchewan number.
    Nyles would like to send his THANKS to all who have supported him during the past week.

    Indeed, call the proper board and get her license taken away. A nurse, please post the number on here (I can’t find it!) He is being forcibly confined.

    Honestly, who cares what he was smoking. No one deserves to have their mobility taken from them. No one deserves to be taken advantage of, and incapacitated. He relies on his wheelchair. Should Ms. V be hog-tied for a week, and forced to wear a diaper and sit in it because she makes decisions another doesn’t agree with? Absolutely not. This comes down to three things:

    1. The wheelchair is essential to this man’s well being. It is patient abuse. Taking advantage of his disability crosses a line and is criminal.
    2. Punishing Mr. Nagy for federal law that Ms. Vaughan doesn’t agree with isn’t her choice.
    3. Punitively taking advantage of patients shows there is no oversight over Ms. Vaughan’s position. How many others have or will be abused? Canada needs to enforce oversight, OR CITIZENS – be an active part of the care of your local care facilites. Make sure the patients are not deteriorating due to their time in the facilities. This is a beautiful country and it’s up to its citizens to keep it strong!

    This story shows how powerful we are, and how much we care.

    P.S. If he was smoking crack, or cocaine, there’d be serious withdrawal symptoms. Which I don’t see. That aside, Ms. Vaughan has NO RIGHT to punish, let alone abuse, this man.

    Your racism is unfounded and unwarranted. Black Americans come in a variety of personalities and life experiences. That said, all black folks know of racism, and while not all have encountered it, all have been aware of it. Obama isn’t anything other than the first brown man to become president. To deny that very powerful fact by saying his ancestry is somehow irrelevant to this historical time is to say a black American, with American ancestry would never be president. Obama encountered racism, and predjudice, like many black Americans. His ancestry has nothing to do with it. To overcome that eponymous American experience, and become president is truly historic.

    And if you want a “true” black American, Mrs. Obama, Michelle, is black, from a black American family, and was Obama’s first boss.

    I see a lot of support for my brother, but unfortunately threating me or the staff of the nursing home is not going to help Nyle. We still have some legal and safety issues to deal with. Instead of negative comments, name calling and death threats towards me and staff of the nursing home, I would request to see some solutions.
    I have been working with the nursing home in trying to come up with options and solutions. Nyle’s license did expire and we have been trying to renew it since May 2009. I mailed the renewal from in May but since Nyle had a new doctor they sent me a letter saying I filled out the wrong forms, then I completed the formed they ent me and they said the dr had to fill out a different form. The dr said he never got the form which was supposed to be sent to him from the government. Presently the staff at Brookhaven and I have been are trying to get that filled out. With the license not being valid it strikes up legal issues of possession of marihuana. Nyle’s Dr prescribed THC spray but it was too costly for Nyle on his pension of $1000 a month. The staff and Dr sent in a request to PHarmacare to cover the cost of the drug but it was denied. Nyle was on cesamet but he didn’t like it, he also has baking with marihuana in it but he doesn’t like that. So Nyle has resort to smoking and there are safety and legal issues (without the renewed license) surrounding it.
    Before everyone calls Adrien I would suggest that you stop with the name calling and come up with some suggestions, or positive comments to help Nyle’s situation. Please help me to turn this whole experience into a positive one.
    I would also ask that the everyone refrain from calling me names and accusing me of not supporting my brother. I feel that trying to come up with suggestions and try to work with the nursing staff will go a lot further than negativity.
    Please support me by helping me to get the spray covered by Pharmacare so Nyle won’t have to worry about where to smoke marihuana safely and with someone there to assist him.
    Thank you all for your support

    look I hate her too but stop threatening to kill this bitch

    get a fucking grip

    You’re like the giant portion of Canadians who started threatening to kill Erik Millett for not forcing his students to sing our national anthem. So he made them realize they were free.
    I did email him to apologize ON THE WHOLE FUCKING COUNTRY’S BEHALF and freedom doesn’t seem to be the crux of why he did it, Mr. Millett does seem a little narcissistic, but can’t we all remember the people threatening to hang him by his eyelids and crap?

    We had grown “adults” running around the country for weeks sharing their violent fantasies of how they would disfigure the principal of an elementary school. People all over our country were talking about torturing him worse than Jesus Christ, and in the papers too, with their names printed and crap. People are LINING UP for restraining orders on him.

    All that over the national anthem? Canada is one giant head up one giant ass. Sorry but I don’t care if you want to kill me for saying that, or anything (although I’d prefer to be deported.)

    But my point is, imagine how angry you are making those to whom the issue is not “said and done?”

    Besides, it’s just not nice.

    Just an update…I visited Mr.Nagy last night, and took him outside to medicate. Mr.Nagy was told by the Nazi-Nurse Adrianne, that if he wanted to use his marijuana, he had to do it off the property, on the busy road. TRUST ME, THIS MAKES IT VERY DANGEROUS FOR HIM…He was also told he would recieve his wheelchair back on Monday…I guess they figure he has been punished enough. Nyles was very happy to hear about all the support he is getting from the Medicinal Marijuana Activists accross North America. Special thanks to the Security Guard the admin sent after us lastnight. He said, that if Nyles chooses legal action against Interior Health, he hopes he wins.

  41. Michael J on

    I think it’s great what you guys are doing helping him out to stay medicated. Is there any chance that he’s able to consume canna edibles or caplets? It may not be ideal for him but it would make his situation easier provided they don’t confiscate it.

    Since he’s paralyzed from the neck down, how is he able to medicate by himself? I don’t see the staff helping him out.

    I do hope a lawyer steps in to argue his case. Arbitrarily taking away a man’s mobility as a punishment has to be an indecent act and contravene some law. Even more so for taking a medication off their property which he is license by the Federal Government to take.

  42. Winder on


    Can’t someone get him out of there? That place needs
    to be shut down, and he needs his wheelchair to stay alive.
    It’s not like he’s running people over, or driving a car.

    At the very least, he has a civil suit against the company. This sounds criminal to me, though. Cruel and unusual punishment, anyone?

    I called, and the -4041 number has a message that it’s been changed to -4040, but nobody answered there, however, they gave me another number 250-862-4043, which I believe is the nurse’s station. I was not allowed to talk to Mr. Nagy, and I was abruptly transferred to Ms. Vaughn’s voice-mail when I asked why I couldn’t talk to Mr. Nagy and if he’s gotten his wheelchair back.

    I left a message on Ms. Vaughn’s vm (and I urge everyone else to do the same), but I’m more concerned about Mr. Nagy and why he’s not allowed phone calls.

    My godmother died from MS a few years back, and at the end her joints was frozen and she couldn’t move out of her bed alone. It is a truly horrific disease. Contemplating what kind of person would deny an MS patient his autonomy leaves me flummoxed… and angry! I can’t think of any situation where that would be appropriate.

    Please, everyone, call Mr. Nagy @ 250-862-4043 and if you can get through to him let him know that he has a lot of support. If you can’t get through, ask if he’s gotten his wheelchair back (or why not). If you get transferred to vm, please leave a message!

    Or do what Gandhi did on a greater scale. Humiliate them by forcing the atrocities out in the public.
    We really need cop watcher groups like in New York for one thing a person with a phone and anyone who wants to protect another.

    We confront these ass’s personally with hidden video recording and throw it on a Video site, like Cop Watchers, You Tube etc..
    If everyone is anonymous for these uploads then they would feel safe but show these people for who they truly are embarrass them by leaving copies in everyone’s mail boxes on every floor of the building, hand them out, whatever.

    We are persecuted and the more shame we can show by being polite and standing your ground and knowing your rights, when you see someone being arrested for whatever reason stop and Cop Watch. You never know and it lets them know they are being watched and they have to obey THEIR OWN LAWS!

    Every Young Adult has a story of when the police over stepped their authority and stepped on our rights, let us think we have none. Some of them are capable of great violence simply becasue you may be a smart ass kid, seems wrong very wrong, those that cannot control their anger with THAT KIND OF AUTHORITY, should NOT be Officers.

    To be an Officer you should be able to control yourself Emotionally on all accounts and deal with the issue logically understanding their boundaries and respecting them. No One or most of us does not want them to drop their guard and be careless getting shot, Everyone just wants more Public Control on Corrupt Officers. Why are these people getting away with murder with solid evidence, yet the laws do not apply to them.
    They suspend them without pay..

    Even better if someone was smart enough to have a watcher on the watcher when the police come and take the camera and *accidentally drop it*, the second watcher gets it all. All you need mostly is a phone..

    We need someone to make small wearable cameras that can be worn as jewelery and the cops wouldn’t know becasue everyone wheres shit like that. Everything in this technology is making it very inexpensive to make it possible.

    AS m.s is a unperdictable and most cruel illness .Which could be linked to the measles virus as was just released by Dr william Tucker.This behaviour from a caregiver is becoming a new low for the prohibitionist as we are seeimg in the west of our country.If another protest is set up ,it should be addressed towards the health minister as each province has one.The main issue is HEALTH AND THE LAW.

    Marijuana our blessed herb is in the legal and in fact is a health benefit.In other words some one send a lawyer to sue these abusers .If someone would tell Nyle to call the police he could place a criminal charge on the establishment for cruel and confined kidnapping.
    As he is A FREEMAN AND CAN and may God bless the compassionate people who have helped him!!

All I know is they can take away your rights but they can never take away your dreams. peace and ganja to all.

    What the fuck this is an outrage. As punishment?? isn’t it punishment enough that the poor guy has multiple sclerosis now his mobility is taken away because he’s smoking a plant to take his pain away instead of disgusting un natural pills? Give them man his damn medicine. That fucking manager needs to be punished himself.

    Well Mr Nyles!!! Was visited by another IH official, who told him “that he shouldn’t have called the media about the wheelchair incident, and that this could come back to haunt him and that they don’t recognize Health Canada’s Marijuana Card”. He is still without is chair, which he was told he won’t be getting back till after the long weekend!! So we pushed him up the hill to the vacant parking lot where he could medicate without bothering anyone. After a short time sitting in the dark lot an IH person approached us and told us that we weren’t allowed to smoke on IH property. So we had to move push him up the hill to the end of the driveway. Without his chair he is unable to leave his room!!! So therefore he can’t self medicate!!! Causing him even more pain and suffering. After self medicating tonight, his first comment to us was” thanks my muscles have started to relax! and I feel much better”

    just corrupt doctors
    – it was probably not the manager – but the doctor that ordered it.

    right now – my father is in the hospital – i am not allowed –
    ( i will clarify this ) to go see my father because the doctor ordered it. the order was instantly reversed when i asked for the order in writing so that i could use it to sue them – i filed a complaint with the gov, but that makes no difference – i will not go back – i choose to not be abused by these people – this was at seven oaks hospital winnipeg –
    forth floor geriatrics – my fathers name is elmer – i expect he is still there – i don’t know – i refuse to return and be abused by these people in their “abuse free facility” make me laugh…

    “David, Cuba is a perfect example”

    Have you been to Cuba?

    I have. You can get arrested for reporting the wrong facts or being critical of the government. Cannabis is illegal there so the revolution betrayed the people, didn’t it?

    Fuck violent revolution. I want a revolution in the way people think about drugs and drug policies – I don’t want some “vanguard party” to seize power on behalf of the people and then screw them over … again.

    “try the french revalution it worked for them!”

    1) The French Revolution did not occur in the last two hundred years. There were no tanks in 1789 … no fighter-bombers … no nuclear weapons. I wanted a more recent example because it’s easier to take over a country militarily if advanced weaponry isn’t involved.

    2) Cannabis is currently prohibited in France – so much for the revolution “working” in the favor of it’s citizens.

    3) They tried another revolution in 1871 and yet another one in 1968 and they both failed. Maybe the trick isn’t to take the country over by military force but rather to fight for reforms within the structure itself.

    I live in Kelowna. I run the Be Kind Okanagan Growers and Compassion Club with my brother. We just opened our doors last Friday. After we saw this story yesterday we were furious. So we went to Brook Haven to meet Mr.Nagy, and give him some Kind Compassion.
    After the CHBC story, Mr Nagy had been placed in a chair that someone could wheel him around in, but it was no wheelchair. He hadn’t been able use his Medicinal Cannabis for 2 days. So we wheeled him outside to the parking lot so he was able to medicate. We’ll be doing the same this evening.
    Mr. Nagy can’t move a muscle below his neck. His only freedom of movement was with that special chair. What Brook Haven did to him is CRIMINAL! Thoes responsible should at the very least, lose thier jobs.

    ..these institutions become politically motivated, or personally so, such as taking this mans legal right to smoke herb away because they dont agree with it..i am sick of this type of abuse by such people, i have witnessed and been on the receiving end of these institutions spin doctors and will fight it to te end….
    We need real oversight in all medical care institutions, not people who work for the hospital- i propose amnesty international become legal advocates for us disabled and institutionalized…

    and I read nothing to think that the story is exaggerated in the TV news.

    Coffee_Canuck is defending the institution because he once worked there but knows of nothing factual about this instance.

    After dealing with Mary McLeod of ANAVETS and her decision to evict Marilyn Holsten for the feint whiff of cannabis, and finding McLeod to be a cold, callous, horrible person, I’m inclined to think these senior’s care institutions are run by the institutional equivalents of Nurse Ratchet from One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.

    Adrien Vaughn and the Brookhaven care facility remain guilty as charged.

    I suggest taking a look at this thread (link posted below) created on Castanet.net about the issue; namely, from a poster named CoffeeCanuck (2nd page). It opened my eyes a bit about the one-sidedness of the report by CHBC. I’m not saying that using Cannabis is wrong (it isn’t!), but given the circumstances, it’s very reasonable to question the validity of Nyle’s accusations.


    I had to take the “http” portion out of the link in order to bypass the spam filter, but simply copying/pasting the above text should do the trick.

    What a bitch. If it was for safety reasons why didn’t she say so? Because it wasn’t. The “investigation” just gives them time to come up with another story. Like “safety”. Some people are so misinformed. So what if he wants to smoke pot, doesn’t look like he has much else to do. Its not going to kill him. Just pathetic. I hope that woman loses her job.

    Look at the man…he’s looks completely traumatized.
    …I wish I was rich so that I could do more. I also wish that our PM would pull his fucking nose out’ve the US’s ass, I have no doubt that he was threatened by Bush and his policy is being maintained by that chickenshit Obama.

    Attention all North Americans…mark this particular point in your lives. Unless we follow Mexico’s, and a number of S American countries’ example…we’re going to end up with less freedom than nazi germany.

    Yep, Canada was invaded by Nazis circa 1989.

    All that’s left now is the crying.

    Why do you think that those “KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON” posters exist, anyway? They’re to signal that Nazis have made landfall in Her Majesty’s Dominions.

    plus look at him, he looks like he probably hadn’t smoked a day in his life before he had to. It’s blatantly honest when he says “they’re the only reasons I smoke it.”

    What kind of monster picks up a paralyzed man out of his wheelchair and leaves him, alone and helpless? You know he couldn’t get out of it himself. That’s the situation he’s in, he can’t even give in.

    I just wonder what they would say first. “We’re here to help you… out of that chair.” Bitch, even Benny Hinn can’t help him out of that chair, you’re forcing him out of it.

    you’re a good man, John, thanks for reminding us you’re 65 years old. I’m young and wouldn’t expect that even if I met you. I think you’ll find the Green party of Canada has a much clearer mission statement than a lot of our pro-politics media conglomerates would like to illustrate. It’s just that the NDP aren’t as likely to honour your wishes after they receive your vote, they have had a poor ethical record for the last four to six years.
    You’ll find a lot of information about the Green party and the NDP right here on CC, and you seem to know we can trust CC already. Either way, happy voting, there are good reasons to vote for both.

    What kind of inhuman treatment is this. I am willing and prepared to fund a law suit on his be halve. What they have done here is not legal in my mind.Supreme court decision would be interesting. Vote N.D.P. and put an end to this sort of insanity. I am 65 yrs old and use it for my problems. The only thing that works so I use it in spite of the fact that I could end up a criminal record. It is no ones rite to deny anyone the use of a HERB for medicine.
