The reason the cops were chasing Graham…..they suspected he was in possession of a plant.

Sadly, Ramarley Graham’s case is one that plays out in cities across the United States. Every day, cops enforcing the immoral war on pot, beat, kidnap, cage, and kill people over this plant.

In Tampa, Florida, a life was taken by cops in this senseless war. This time, an unarmed man sitting in a bedroom with two grams of weed was murdered by state agents seeking out this plant.
