FOX 17 CLARE COUNTY, Mich. — “An 80-year-old grandmother in Clare County was jailed for the first time in her life, because she had a small amount of cannabis at home but her Michigan medical marijuana card expired.
Delores Saltzman and her son Mark tell FOX 17 cannabis saved her life: it worked up her appetite when she was sick; helped her heal after surgeries; and eases her pain from ongoing health conditions. They are disturbed a deputy jailed her overnight for using her medicine.
“After I smoke I go down to a one, pain-wise,” said Delores Saltzman, 80. “Before I smoke, I would say I’m an 8 right now.”
This November, Saltzman turns 81. She lives with arthritis, diverticulitis, muscle and bone aches, but she says cannabis keeps her moving and making art.
“This is the little paper I work with,” she said showing the camera, “it’s called quilling.”
“[Cannabis] saved my life because I had a bad bleed about four years ago, and Mark took care of me,” adding when doctors prescribed her opioids, it caused stomach pains and vomiting.
June 13 around 9 p.m., Clare County Sheriff’s Deputy Ashley Gruno knocked on Delores’ door. According to court records, Gruno was trying to locate Saltzman’s great granddaughter, and return her lost phone and ID. That’s when the deputy smelled marijuana from Saltzman’s porch.
“[The deputy] asked whose it was, correct?” Mark Saltzman asked his mother.
“Right, and I told her it was mine,” Saltzman said, explaining she was honest with the deputy.
“[The deputy] came in and kind of frustrated you; remember how you were telling me that your anxiety went up off the roof?” Mark asked his mother, to which she said, “Way up.”
Court records show the deputy seized: several pipes, four joints and one purple jar with an undisclosed amount of cannabis. When FOX 17 asked Saltzman how much marijuana she had, she explained it was less than an eighth of an ounce.
Saltzman also says the deputy searched her bedroom, took pictures, even helped her clean up her kitchen.
“I got everything done but the one pan, and I says, ‘Are you ready hon?’ because she’s just standing there leaning after she put the bread and ketchup away, just leaning there, ” said Saltzman. “I said, ‘Are you ready hon? Let’s go.'”
Then, court records show Saltzman was handcuffed in the patrol car. She says the deputy did not read her rights to her, and she was escorted to jail for the night.
“That’s ridiculous what they do to people, they don’t need to make you that cold,” said Saltzman. “Old Arthur was screaming at me!”
“She won’t know who Arthur is,” Mark said to his mother.
“Arthritis,” she clarified.
Saltzman hopes sharing her story will help others.”
