Twelve-year-old Justine Rosenthal
knows her daddy could spend the rest
of his life in jail, but still thinks
he did the right thing by risking
his freedom for medicinal marijuana.

"He is standing up for sick people,"
the middle school student said Tuesday,
after watching the first day
of her father Ed Rosenthal's trial.

"I'm really proud of my dad -- he's a hero, really."

A man who identified himself only as 'Honza,' protests beside a fabricated marijuana leaf outside a courthouse where the federal marijuana cultivation trial of former High Times columnist Ed Rosenthal is taking place, Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2003, in San Francisco. Rosenthal says he was growing medical marijuana, 'to help the sick,' which is legal under California law. Rosenthal's case and others are an outgrowth of the government's drug war, two years after the U.S. Supreme Court said it was a violation of federal drug laws for medical marijuana clubs to dispense pot to the sick.
