If someone is charged (not yet convicted but clear case) for a felony involving marijuana, will he lose his medical benefits?
My friend has been convicted of a felony charge involving marijuana. Indiana is not yet involved in legalizing marijuana for medical purposes. The amount he had was just above legal limits and he grew those by the house for his own pain.
He agreed upon the search and did not get arrested but was told to wait 3-4 weeks for a call and he'd have to turn himself in. This due to his toes just being amputated due to his severe diabetes.
He waited 4 months, no calls. He lost his residence because he can't work and moved. Open warrant got him arrested a year later.
Will he lose medical benefits if found guilty even if he can not provide for himself? He will definitely die without medications? If this can be proven is there a way to keep medicaid or other medical support for his medication? And what about food stamps?
