Medical cannabis activist Chris Butts, his girlfriend and fellow activist Sonja Renae, and two others were arrested by the Cullman County Sheriff’s Department in Alabama at about 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon and — reportedly — charged with possession and cultivation of marijuana.

“Was just raided,” Butts posted on Facebook around 5 p.m. Central time. “I’m in the back of a transport right now going to get locked up for a 12 hour holding period.”

In the post, Butts alleges that his ex-wife, DJ, is responsible for the raid. The former couple share custody of a young son.

“Update: Chris Butts, Sonja Renae, Dylan Cassidy, Amber Nixon, all were arrested,” reads a comment on Chris’s Facebook post by his mother, Tommie Greer Oconnell.

“Charged with trafficking,” the comment reads. “I can go back up at 6 a.m. and try to get them released but I’m told by Cullman County the bond will be a million dollars each. I can’t fathom that much money.”

Chris Butts has, for several years, led the Alabama Medical Marijuana Coalition (AMMJC), a group which works politically for safe access to cannabis for patients in the Heart of Dixie.

His efforts, along with those of all the members of AMMJC, including former co-president Ron Crumpton, now with the Alabama Safe Access Project (ASAP), have resulted in several medical marijuana bills being introduced in the Alabama Legislature over the past couple of years.
