Bay Area Rap luminary Too Short and Colorado-based “Ganjapreneur” Jayson Emo (better known as Giddy Up), came to the aid of pot activist Marla James who last month fell victim to a brutal string of verbal harassment from Santa Ana police following a dispensary raid.
Unrelentingly degrading both the business and James, surveillance footage also caught an unaware female cop saying that she wanted to kick wheelchair-bound amputee James (who was working as the on-duty manager) in her “fucking nub.
Emo, who caught wind of the footage shortly after it went viral, knew he had to do something after witnessing the poor condition of James wheelchair. Enlisting the help of Too Short , they gifted 54-year-old James a brand new Jazzy 600 ES powered wheelchair.
“Giving Marla the chair, it reaffirmed that I’m in a position to make the changes I’d like to see in the world,” Emo said. “If there’s something I’d like to do from now on, I’ll do it. It’s great to help people out when they need it. It’s not what got me in this business, but it’s what keeps me in this business.”
