This is an interesting story and could happen to anyone and the amount was small but hopefully she will be able to provide proof to show as medical marijuana. The whole battle over small amounts of marijuana with the federal and state laws some day need to be ironed out. BD
HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP) - A Bermuda judge has released a Harvard instructor who was caught with marijuana at the U.K. territory's airport.
Mey Akashah teaches environmental health at the Harvard School of Public Health.
On Monday, the Boston resident admitted bringing 6 grams (0.21 ounce) of pot into Bermuda for a weekend trip but says a doctor prescribed it for medical reasons.
She could provide no proof that she had legally been prescribed pot for pain. She says her doctor in California had the documentation.
