....I'm not even going to comment on the fact that murderers have gotten less time, and that paedophile rapists are usually free in less than 4 years....
Below is the article in the US Observer that outlines the ridiculous charges against Trisha and her son from March 13th 2013, and a link to their original article from April 2012.
Trish's Case is yet another nail in the coffin of the Corporate Government and it's blatant lies and deceit against the People. Trish was helping people with a known, studied and well confirmed and verified alternative medical therapy, and that made Big Pharma angry and made the Government Corporation angry. So they threw a tantrum and went after her in a circus of court proceedings that if it wasn't for the fact that Trisha and her son are standing in the middle of this mess, it would be hysterically funny.
By the way, did you know that the US Government/corporation owns all the patents on medical cannabis cures and treatments?
.... well geeeee! Why would they go after a woman for legally producing medical cannabis cures and treatments when they Know that Cannibis cures so many things? Might it be that they don't want people to be healed and helped? hmmmmmmm
They are holding the contrast so brightly that it's illuminating the disclosure of corruption of the corporation.
...... of course, I'd rather illuminate them with a bonfire, but that's just me being grumpy.
I've been told that a facebook page is being set up to support Trisha and her son and to share incoming information and updates. As soon as I have that info, I will publish it here on RTS. I have three friends using cannabis oil to treat their cancer..... this trial against Trisha outrages me.
I have another friend being brought up on charge by the medical madmen because she's healing people, and another friend who has been harassed to the extreme also for healing people. I have witnessed midwives being brought up on murder charges because they chose to give grieving parents peace and dignity of having their sleeping baby born at home. Midwives imprisoned because they refused to register with the provincial governments because they recognized the push of the medical associations to force midwives to medicalize birth they way they do.
BUT...... I content myself with the knowledge that this is all about to come to a screeching halt very very very VERY soon.
Until that moment though, I will do whatever I can to fight these injustices of a system so corrupt that they would throw away a human life before allowing a single dollar to slip through their fingers.
States Rights vs Federal Rights and Individual Rights vs Police State Actions Share This Article

Eastern District of California - As you read this release, realize it is a fact that California passed Proposition 215 in 1996, which makes it legal for Patricia Albright to grow medicinal marijuana after she obtains a prescription – she did this. Further, the State of California passed SB420 in 2003, which prompts growers to grow medicinal marijuana and makes it legal for growers to sell their “overages” to dispensaries and other prescription holders.
Using a strict and factual interpretation of the United States Constitution, federal prosecutors have absolutely no jurisdiction to prosecute Patricia Albright or her son even though they have usurped the right. The prosecution of Albright and others like her is wasting billions of hard earned tax dollars each year. And, Albright’s prosecution is just plain wrong, ethically and morally.
What was Patricia Albright doing with her marijuana?
As I wrote in our previous press release, Patricia Albright’s use of marijuana started with her 8 year-old, deathly ill son Trevor. She used marijuana to treat Trevor due to the prompting of an oncologist, in order to alleviate Trevor’s pain and improve his quality of life. Trevor had terminal cancer – Trevor tragically died… The US Attorney’s Office should look long and hard at this picture of young Trevor – and then ask themselves, what if this was my child?

Patricia made butters for baked goods, oils and tinctures for people with Hepatitis C, on dialysis, AIDS, high blood pressure and cancer. We do not want to reveal the names of these individuals as we do not want to draw a road map for the federal government to wrongfully harass and possibly arrest them.
It takes many pounds of medicinal marijuana to make butter, oil and tinctures. So, when prosecutors talk of “pounds” and “great numbers of plants,” it is important to realize that this is being done for the sole purpose of exaggerating the circumstances, simply to make Patricia Albright look bad when she is in front of her jury.
Patricia never charged for these things, she called it "part of her ministry". Two of the following three people who used marijuana grown at Patricia’s farm were part of her “collective” of growers and had their prescriptions posted, as did Patricia, on the gate at the entrance to her farm and they all believed they were acting legally according to California State law.
One person who received substantial pain relief from the marijuana that Patricia grew has had a massive stroke and is riddled with cancer – unfortunately, due to Patricia’s false prosecution he no longer has access to her organic medicine, which could alleviate much of his pain and discomfort.
Two other individuals who used marijuana grown at Patricia’s farm for pain relief have now died - one of aids and the other of bone cancer. Both of these individuals made substantial claims regarding the pain relief the marijuana provided. I should note that we are looking into numerous other instances where Patricia Albright helped extremely ill people who possessed prescriptions for marijuana, cope with their pain through the use of medicinal marijuana.
Who is responsible for this miscarriage of justice?
Patricia’s Federal Public Defender Matthew Scoble of Sacramento, CA was recently provided cooperating witness Jacob “Jake” Donahue’s statement against Patricia and her son Jordan Wirtz. According to Albright, “my attorney Matt was working with prosecutor Michael Beckwith to postpone our trial in order to give Matt enough time to investigate Donahue’s statement, which was full of lies and very damning to us.”

Albright continued, “When we met with Matt and after I told him about the US~Observer article he became very agitated over the fact that I would speak to the US~Observer and that they had published. He told me it could cause the judge to give me additional time on my sentence and he told me that I had better hope that the judge doesn’t see the article. He then stated that the judge would look at my statements to the Observer as witness tampering. He went on to tell me not to talk with the Observer or any press again.”
Here you have it folks! Patricia Albright has not had a trial yet, virtually no investigation of her case has been conducted by her public defender, she has been under strict supervision since her arrest (which actually equates to serving a sentence), her public defender is attempting to restrain her absolute 1st Amendment rights and her conviction and actual sentencing is already a foregone conclusion to her own attorney. What justice – what freedom…
Back on track - Matthew Scoble reportedly had a call from Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) Mike Beckwith while Albright was at his office wherein Beckwith began recanting on his tentative agreement to continue the trial. According to Albright, “later that same day Scoble informed me that Beckwith told him that he would not agree to continue and that he was going to pursue other tactics, which could only be interpreted as vindictive. Scoble stated that Beckwith probably didn’t want the continuance because he was trying to cover his “butt” with his boss (US Attorney Wagner) for waiting to give Scoble crucial discovery until just days before trial, leaving them no time to investigate the discovery. AUSA Beckwith had possessed the discoverable material for well over two years.
I thought that defense attorneys were supposed to vigorously defend their client throughout the case, not merely during the three weeks prior to trial. It is very alarming that her attorney would reportedly tell her, you have no case, when responding to her question as to why she was in his office on March 18, 2013. How can Scoble explain why he is reportedly going on vacation the week prior to her scheduled April 2, 2013 trial? Patricia’s own attorney is slowly becoming responsible, in part, for her false prosecution.
Patricia has already informed us that Scoble told her to pack up her home and get ready to go to prison. According to Albright, she doesn’t have any defense because Federal Judge Garland E. Burrell Jr. has stated that he won’t allow a “medicinal marijuana” or “legal according to California State law defense.” This is pure insanity! Even people charged with federal tax evasion are afforded the “good faith belief” defense of believing they weren’t required to pay the federal income tax. And there are no state laws making tax evasion legal, whereas California State law makes Patricia’s medicinal marijuana grow perfectly legal. If this is indeed Judge Burrell’s position, he will be responsible in great part for her false prosecution.
AUSA Michael M. Beckwith is responsible for the false prosecution of Patricia Albright. If Beckwith has acted coercively, like Patricia’s account of what her attorney has stated to her implies, then he is a great danger to freedom and the principles that once made America a great nation. His attempted false prosecution of this innocent American will permanently hang around his neck like an albatross… Beckwith is the main person at this juncture responsible for Patricia Albright’s attempted false prosecution.
United States Attorney for the Eastern District of California Benjamin B. Wagner, in the end, will share the greatest responsibility for the Albright false prosecution, should he allow it to continue. If Mr. Wagner looks closely at the facts of this case he will easily see that a single lady possessing a shot gun and a revolver out in the wilderness have nothing whatsoever to do with growing a medicinal marijuana crop. If he takes the time to look into this case, all he will have to do to understand the false structuring charge that is tied to the medicinal marijuana charges, is to ask Patricia Albright for her explanation as I have done. He will then dismiss this case in the interest of justice.
U.S. Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner
The greatest responsibility for this absolute travesty of justice is President Barack Obama, his Justice Department and the United States Congress. President Obama is the one who instructed his “Justice Department” in 2009, to announce to the public that the feds would not be going after medical marijuana growers who were following state law. This public announcement was actually nothing more or less than “entrapment” in many cases.
It is Congress that makes unconstitutional laws. It is Congress who empowers the federal police state to trample state rights and totally violate the 10th Amendment.
In closing and out of fairness, it is possible that US Attorney Benjamin Wagner doesn’t know all the facts of the Albright case. Unlike his AUSA Beckwith, who has had the time and ability to properly investigate the facts, Wagner now has the opportunity to investigate and then right this wrong – he is informed… I want to stress that it will take men like US Attorney Benjamin Wagner to stop the insanity that is going on within our justice system.
I do not smoke marijuana and I’m certain that none of our investigators use it for medicinal purposes or for any other reason. However, I believe in freedom and I absolutely hate hypocrisy. While our federal government continually talks about deficits and money shortages, they continue to waste countless tax dollars on victimless crimes. They continue to spend billions upon billions to prosecute and jail exceptional people like Patricia Albright and it is time that all Americans start screaming for them to stop, before our nation is completely bankrupt, both financially and morally.
I just received the following email from Patricia Albright:“My attorney just called me to tell me that he has read the US~Observer article a number of times and he has decided that he is going to file a motion to remove himself from my case because he doesn't appreciate his name being dragged through the mud. He says he hasn't heard anything from the judge on his motion to continue my trial. He also stated that I'd better hope that the judge has not yet read the article because when he does I am going to be very sorry.”Is Scoble implying that Judge Burrell is prejudiced and vindictive? Is he implying that the judge is unconcerned with Patricia Albright’s Constitutional rights? I would think better of Judge Burrell – I am very skeptical when someone speaks for another, especially when that someone is a public defender who has doing nothing to prepare or better yet, fight for a defense for his client…
As we prepare to release this Alert, I have been informed that Judge Burrell has just granted the motion for Matthew Scoble to withdraw as Patricia’s public defender. The judge has set a status conference for Friday March 22, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. Scoble informed Ms. Albright that she will receive another attorney at that time.
Even though I have been dealing with false prosecutions for over 30 years, 22 years publishing the Observer, I have never witnessed a more tragic case than this. To read the previous article, click here.
