Dolores Halbin, 63, a registered nurse, grew medical cannabis for her ill husband who died as a result of jail time.
“On March 18th, 2014 our home in Bates County, [Missouri] was raided. We spent one week in jail. During that time my husband wasn’t given any medications for anything. He had very bad diabetes. He had a silent heart attack in jail and consequently died,” Halbin says.
Dolores Halbin and her husband, Gene, were married for 40 years. She wears a pendant containing her husband’s ashes.
“Two weeks and three days after we spread my husband’s ashes, I went on trial,” she explains. Her story went viral. She was contacted by advocates all over the world.
