Outrage after police search terminally ill cancer patient’s hospital room for marijuana


A Missouri police department and a local hospital are under fire tonight after officers searched the belongings of a cancer patient in end of life care for marijuana. Bolivar police say they were responding to a call of someone smoking marijuana, but after the cancer patient told officers he took a cannabis pill outside the hospital, they searched his personal items before a doctor intervened.
