Sarah, Lindsey and Josh
Sarah Caldwell is the former Executive Director of Finance for Moms for Marijuana International. She is also a founding member of Idaho Moms for Marijuana, founding director for Compassionate Idaho, Idaho NORML, and the Idaho H.O.P.E. Fest.
Lindsey Rinehart is the Director, Chief Petitioner and Volunteer Coordinator for Compassionate Idaho's Medical Marijuana Petition. She is also a core member of the Idaho H.O.P.E. Fest Committee, and Idaho Moms for Marijuana.
Josh Rinehart is Lindsey's husband, Director of Idaho NORML, and core member of Idaho H.O.P.E. Fest and Compassionate Idaho.
These three non-violent, loving parents have dedicated their time, their money, and their lives to help end Cannabis Prohibition in the State of Idaho, and help reach others world wide.
They needed our help!
Lindsey and Josh's house was raided by Boise Police and Child Protective Services while Lindsey, Josh & Sarah were on a small trip in the mountains.
Lindsey and Josh's two children were taken into protective custody, and because Sarah's two children were also at the residence with the babysitter, they were taken as well.
All three of these dedicated Cannabis warriors are physically disabled, and receive very little to no income, and absolutely zero income from any of their volunteer efforts in Cannabis Reform. They were all in need of help to retain both family law and criminal law attorneys. Attorney costs can range anywhere from $1000-$4000 per case.
Moms sprang into action!
With the help of the cannabis community, we were able to raise more than $6500 in a matter of days for Our Idaho 3. Sarah, Josh and Lindsey all have their children back. They have some hoops to jump through, and Lindsey and Josh fully expect possession charges to be filed, but their kids are back with them and attorneys are retained.
This outpouring of support and the compassion and generosity of the cannabis community has inspired us to continue to help families any way we can. We often receive requests for help with Child Protection Services/Family Services matters regarding marijuana using parents. We have set up this new fund to help raise monies to support these families. Please click on the link below for more information and to donate to help Moms for Marijuana help children and families.
Checks and Money Orders can be sent to Moms for Marijuana International, 108 W. Richmond Ave, Dayton, WA 99328 - please note in the memo that your donation is for The Moms's CPS Compassion Fund.
