Pot activist and writer Matt Mernagh is a medical marijuana user who was busted growing 70 plants in St. Catharines, Ontario. Mernagh had attempted unsuccessfully for years to find a doctor that would sign his medical marijuana licence papers, even though he suffers from Fibromyalgia and Scoliosis. He was busted and charged with one count of production, and is now changeling the constitutionality of Canadian production laws.
