JACKSON- Adam Brook's two-year stint as a marijuana POW is over.
Brook was jailed two years ago on gun charges related to a marijuana raid on his home in Royal Oak. The raid came shortly after Brook announced his intention to sue the city of Royal Oak for passing an ordinance that discriminates against licensed and registered medical marijuana caregiving and patient activities within city limits. Brook's lawsuit was dismissed before he entered incarceration.
Brook described to me before his jailing that he was swimming at the YMCA when officers informed him that his home had been raided and his wife was being held pending his arrival. On the advice of attorneys, and in exchange for dropping drug and weapons charges against his wife, Brook agreed to the sentence.
Incarceration posed problems for the ailing Brook, who often walked with canes when he made public appearances. His medical care was not as strident as was required by his illnesses.
The Brook family has requested a period of adjustment before Adam returns to a more public role.
