Medical Marijuana Defendant Aaron Sandusky Adjusts to Texas Prison

As Aaron Sandusky adjusts to his new environment at Federal Correctional Institution Big Spring in western Texas, he remains hopeful he will prevail on appeal.

The 43-year-old Rancho Cucamonga resident is serving a 10-year sentence after being convicted of violating federal marijuana laws. He was the president of the now closed G3 Holistic Inc. medical marijuana cooperatives in Upland, Colton and Moreno Valley.

Sandusky arrived in Texas on Friday after a weeks-long journey from the Metropolitan Detention Center in Los Angeles, where he had spent the last six months.

“I struggle every day. You want time to move fast but then it passes and it kills you to be inside, stuck in here,” Sandusky said during a phone interview. “If I don’t win this appeal I’m looking at settling down here and trying to find a way to pass the next 10 years. ”

Sandusky’s attorney, Roger Jon Diamond, has been working on his appeal.
