(AUCKLAND / SALEM) – A 51-year old cancer patient is facing his end days over New Zealand’s so-called legal justice system. The injustice is palpable and it won’t take out one struggling human being, but two.
Peter Davy, a Medical Cannabis user, was arrested for growing marijuana plants in his garden; plants that have kept him alive as he’s waged a 10 year battle with cancer. A judge in New Zealand says Davy is going to prison for growing the plants that have spared his life. Without cannabis he doesn’t have a life.
Davy said, “I want to make it clear that I will be going on a hunger strike the moment I am given a prison sentence and I absolutely do not want to be force fed under any circumstances. I will also be refusing all cancer medication. I am 100% committed to continuing with a hunger strike until I am dead.”
His spirit hearkens back to the days if the Irish Republican Army (IRA); when Bobby Sands refused to give into the British terrorist state and ultimately died of starvation in one of the harshest kinds of death.
And Like Sands, who knew he was forced to take the ultimate stand, he has every bloody right to be pissed off. Adding to Peter Davy’s problems, is the fact that his life partner suffers from Multiple Sclerosis and Peter is her care provider. 39-year old Tracey Perrin, says that while she does not smoke marijuana, she completely supports its medical use, and was convinced Davy would carry out the hunger strike.
Tracey said, “Having that Irish blood in him, he is stubborn, which terrifies me. I don’t want to lose my best friend.”
She continued, “He is my carer, I am confined to a wheelchair and need 24-hour care. If he goes to prison I will have to go to a rest home to be cared for and will lose my home and my possessions.”
New Zealand is willing to let them die.
Why? Because the country’s laws are on a par with those of the United States. American officials are perfectly clear that they do not want to save the lives of their countrymen; instead preferring to maintain the illegal status of a natural plant. Officials in Auckland are willing to follow suit.
He explains, “My partner has advanced Multiple Sclerosis and I am her 24-hour caregiver. She is dying and will die without me.”
