On the 21st September 2012, Božidar Radišić, an activist in the field of drug policies and an advocate of medical cannabis in Slovenia, was detained. In his garden he had five cannabis plants which he cultivated exclusively for his own use and self-medication. Despite the complete lack of evidence of the purpose of re-sale, as well as the presence of irregularities in the procedure, carried out by law enforcement agencies, Božidar remains in custody up to this day. In order to highlight the injustice that has been going on, he decided to go on a hunger strike.
