Mother of Three Goes to Jail for Growing Medical Pot

On December 17, 2013, Daisy Bram was convicted of cultivation of
marijuana and possession of marijuana with intent to sell. Bram was
sentenced to 120 days in jail and four years probation. Bram was
incarcerated on February 1, 2014. Her three children were taken
into custody by Child Protective Services more than a year ago and
remain in foster care.

“Parents, Pot and Prohibition: Daisy Bram’s Story” was released
on May 16, 2013. The original text is here:

As her children were being taken away from her, Daisy Bram
screamed, “My babies! My babies!”

In 2011, Daisy Bram and Jayme Walsh lived with their two small
children, Thor and Zeus, in Butte County, California. Like so many
other people in northern California, Bram and Walsh had medical
marijuana recommendations and a small cannabis garden in their back
yard. In September, their home was raided by Butte County sheriffs.
Bram and Walsh were charged with cultivation of marijuana,
possession with intent to sell, and child endangerment. Thor and
Zeus were taken by Child Protective Services and placed in foster
care for four months.

A year later, Bram gave birth to their third son, Invictus. With
their Butte County cases still unresolved, Bram and Walsh decided
to move their family to neighboring Tehama County.

In January of 2013, Tehama County sheriffs raided Bram and
Walsh’s new home. This time they found a cannabis garden in a
locked room off the back of the house. Child Protective Services
once again seized Bram and Walsh’s children and placed them in
foster care, where they remain to this day. On January 30, Tehama
County officers seized Bram’s car. Walsh is currently in jail with
bail set at one million dollars. Bram is out on bail awaiting
future court dates.

“There is nothing worse that someone can be accused of than
doing something to harm their own children. If someone from the
government is going to come after someone and make that accusation,
they better have the ammunition ready to go,” said Michael
Levinsohn, Daisy Bram’s attorney.
