What happened to Steven W Tuck?

The last news I saw was Oct 22, 2005. It said he had been released so he could go to the hospital. Those articles are disappearing now.

The headline that caught my eye was "Veteran Frog Marched to Border". Turns out this US citizen fled in 2001? To avoid prosecution. He was growing under the medical law in California, and the feds stepped in with a federal law. He took enough seeds when he fled to start Canada'a medical hemp program. He has applied for political asylum in Canada, and been denied.

So, this veteran who was injured in the 80's and has been on prescription morphine for 16 years is laying on a gurney waiting for surgery in Canada. The marshals doctor shopped until one said he could be released. He is taken from the hospital, catheter still attached, and delivered to the US. Then he is thrown in jail for 4 days with no medical treatment for his catheter of morphine addiction. The gave him an OTC med, not nearly enough.

The last article quoted his lawyer, and mentioned possibly losing and infected body part. He had been treated, and they were waiting to see if he responded to the antibiotics. Then nothing..... Today when I searched, all gone, like it never happened.

How can we torture a veteran by withdrawal? Where is all the news? What happened to this man?

If you know, please leave a comment, so I can too.
