Trafficking scheme? The patient is not legally responsible for what the grower is doing. Thats how I understood it.
The way I see it is if a patient has a deal to receive "free" meds in exchange for the license then they have involved themselves in a trafficking scheme. The grower, if caught, could be solely responsible but any investigator would be able to tie them together and both could be charged.
Not any different than getting a prescription for a narcotic and then pretending to know nothing when your "friend" exchanges them for $5 each on the corner and gets caught. You both can be charged with trafficking and you could lose your ability to get a prescription narcotic in the future.
That is not a chance I am willing to take with my licenses.
