Robert Jordan won’t face any charges for growing two marijuana plants to treat his wife's illness, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports.  Cathy Jordan suffers from the paralyzing disease ALS, and prosecutors decided not to press charges because her husband would likely win in court with a medical necessity defense.
