They nabbed Dr. Brett Wickstrom’s wife, Liebe Wickstrom, too — but I guess it’s hard to avoid the ole “accessory” tag when you’re caught with over 11 pounds of marijuana (at your place of business).
The Wickstrom’s “I Heart My Spine” clinic was located in Greenville, North Carolina — “The Emerald City” — and the couple were apparently accomplishing their mission to “heal the community” from the office:
5 Essentials for Optimal Health· Optimal Nerve Supply (Check)
· Optimal Nutrition (Ehhh)
· Optimal Oxygen and Lean Muscle (Probably not)
· Optimal Mental Function (Check +)
· Minimal Toxins (We’ll just pretend that pertained exclusively to the Doc’s Chiropractic services)
According to Dr. Brett’s bio:
[He’s been] a licensed Chiropractor since 2009. He received his bachelors from Northern Michigan University in Sports Science in 2005. As a 300 pound starting offensive lineman on the NMU football team, he was voted Most Improved and Most Inspirational player.
Based on his mugshot and booking info from the Pitt County Sheriff’s office, it appears Dr. Wickstrom has dropped a few pounds since his playing days, so at least he probably hadn’t been partaking of his illicit product.
Unfortunately for Brett, investigators obtained a second warrant for the Wickstrom’s residence, where even more dope was found — 11 plants as well as growing materials. So, yeah; things aren’t looking particularly good for the Winstrom’s.
Now, without getting particularly political, I guess you could say I’m fairly liberal when it comes to the supposed social ills of marijuana. I think we’d all be better off if it was simply another legal, but “controlled,” substance — like alcohol, or tobacco…or caffeine.
That said, it’s hard for me to sympathize with you when you’re dealing out of what’s otherwise a pseudo-legitimate place of business. Having 20 plants just chillin’ at your house makes it worse, of course. I mean, why cast caution to the wind?
Oh, and tell your wife to not list “Weeds” as one of her favorite TV shows on her Facebook page***. You’re just asking for it at that point…
