Drug Charges Dropped Against Parents

DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) -- The parents of an Iowa man who says he grew marijuana to help treat his cancer no longer face charges.
   On Wednesday a Scott County judge dismissed the cases filed against 75-year-old Dottie and 76-year-old Chuck Mackenzie. They were accused of hosting a drug house, which is a misdemeanor.
   Their son, Benton Mackenzie and his wife, Loretta, were convicted on July 9 of manufacturing marijuana. He says he used oil from the pot to treat his cancer of the blood vessels
   A prosecutor filed a motion to dismiss the charges against the elder Mackenzies. It says they had no criminal history and didn't actively participate in growing or using marijuana.
   Dottie Mackenzie said Thursday that she thinks public pressure had a great deal to do with the charges being dropped.
