Up in (pot) smoke

Conflict between state, federal laws leads to man’s eviction
Tim Walker smokes medical marijuana to numb the pain that shoots through his right arm and leg, the result of three strokes 16 years ago. But because medical marijuana is illegal under federal law, Walker is being evicted from his federally subsidized apartment. He must be moved out by Tuesday, but finding another place to live isn’t easy on the $1,100 a month he receives in Social Security disability benefits.
Tim Walker says he’s getting a raw deal, but “there’s nothing I can do about it.” Walker is being evicted for smoking medical marijuana in his federally subsidized apartment. It’s one of dozens of cases statewide where federal and state marijuana laws have come to a head in federally subsidized housing.
Walker’s efforts to find a new place to live have so far been ineffective. He must leave Tamarin Square Senior Apartments by Tuesday.
