Idaho Moms For Marijuana Protester Cited in State Capital


Serra Frank was protesting in Boise, Idaho, with Idaho Moms for Marijuana during the second annual New Year’s Smoke Out Protest on Jan. 1, 2017. At 4:20 p.m., she was cited for misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance and possession of paraphernalia, and gave her marijuana to the police, according to Jan. 1, 2017, articles in the Idaho Statesman and KIVI-TV.

Frank, founder of Idaho Moms for Marijuana, was the only person cited during the protest, which was attended by only a few people at the Idaho State Capitol Building. Idaho Moms for Marijuana was collecting signatures on a petition for legalization of medical marijuana. The group was also protesting Idaho Gov. Butch Otter’s opposition to the use of cannabidiol as a treatment for seizures.

“We are completely surrounded by legal marijuana, by CBD and by decriminalization and Idaho is on the wrong side of history and it’s up to us how long we are going to stay there,” Frank said.
