Police seize medical marijuana from AIDS sufferer

A Regina man whose medical marijuana was seized by the Regina police is worried he’s going to be charged with drug offences.

Tom Shapiro has AIDS and takes marijuana to relieve nausea.

“I’m going to pay for this with my health,” he said.

He also grows the drug in his basement, having been first approved for a medical marijuana grow operation five years ago.

Shapiro said he was waiting for Health Canada to approve his annual application when police showed up at his door late Tuesday afternoon with a search warrant.
