Seems like either using marijuana to treat Crohn's Disease or using Crohn's Disease as an excuse to spark up a fattie is catching on!
An city councilman in Everly, Iowa who was arrested on marijuana charges has resigned.
47 year old Stephen Rank submitted his resigation from the council on Monday. In a letter to city officials, Rank says the May 11 search of his home and his arrest have brought an inordinate amount of attention to the council.
Rank was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia after investigators with the Clay County sheriff's office found what they described as a significant amount of marijuana in Rank's home in the small northwest Iowa town.
Rank was in the middle of his second term on the council when he was arrested.
He claims he has Crohn's disease and uses marijuana to treat the condition.
