Paey freed

Richard Paey, the chronic pain sufferer prosecuted and imprisoned as a "drug trafficker" for securing the medication he needs to treat his condition, has been exonerated. Florida Governor Charlie Crist granted him a full pardon, allowing him to return to his family with his rights restored.

A major irony of Paey's time behind bars has not passed without notice:

Since his incarceration, prison doctors have hooked him up to a morphine drip, which delivers more pain medication daily than he was convicted of trafficking.

Best of luck to Paey as he rebuilds his life.
