Accomplishments: Mentored other inmates, as they have often remarked about Lance’s encouraging words have got them through the day on a daily basis. Lance worked as a Unit Orderly which is very fitting for Lance due to his extreme organizational skills. Lance also worked in the Education/Law library to assist other inmates to obtain their GED. His primary goal is to prepare inmates to be productive citizens within society. Lance finished both a victim’s and maximum impact course, as well as a drug and alcohol education and rehabilitation course. As a well- rounded inmate, Lance also plays basketball and softball as an opportunity to utilize his “team player” skills.
According to Lance Gloor’s mother, Tracie Gloor-Pike:
Lance Gloor is a very strong-willed person with the God given motivational gift of Compassion. Being strong-willed, Lance is a very determined person who doesn’t give up easily. He is not lazy about what he wants. Lance has the ability to make a “dream” come true. Therefore, he sticks to a “dream” until it becomes a reality. Lance became interested in marijuana/cannabis and the many benefits it safely provides people of all ages. He became aware of the facts that this God created plant not only provides quality to people’s lives it also provides quantity to people’s lives. His “dream” of helping others in this field became more important. Having the God given motivational gift of compassion, Lance is compassionate, sensitive and aware of the needs and feels the hurts of others. Lance is a kind hearted, gentle and caring man, willing to sacrifice his own needs to help someone else. Because Lance realized there is an immeasurable need for people to have a safe and legal access to the benefits of Medical Marijuana/Cannabis he desired to make this happen. With the legal advice of the highly respected law firm, Harris Moure, his “dream” of helping others and operating Washington State LEGAL became a reality. Lance could now be there for others in need. He would be able to come alongside others and help them to bear their burdens with events, including but not limited to, food drives, clothing drives, toy drives, school supply drives, holiday meal giveaways, paying for grocery shopping, utility bills, funeral costs, and medication. All of this required “team” work. Then the turmoil in the form of raids began to take place. Washington State, Thurston County and the City of Lacey dropped all charges. The DOJ picked up the case. Because of Lance’s strong-will to make a decision and stick to it, his integrity, loyalty and his compassion to help and not harm others, he chose not to take any of the numerous deals offered to him by the Prosecutor, Vince Lombardi. Because Lance is strong-willed and compassionate, he feels the need to stand up for what and who he believes in during these very difficult times.
“ONE TEAM ONE DREAM”. My son, Lance Gloor was sentenced on June 3, 2016 by the Honorable Judge Leighton to 10 years in Federal Prison plus 5 years probation for helping others via Washington State Legal Medical Marijuana Dispensary. His charges are conspiracy to distribute and manufacture marijuana. As you know, conspiracy carries a 5 year mandatory minimum sentence. Jeffrey Kradel from Kradel Defense was Lance’s legal counsel for sentencing. Mr Kradel had to withdraw due to the fact he is a trial attorney not an appellant attorney. I believe Judge Leighton wasn’t given a fair opportunity to know the real Lance Gloor. Instead he had to listen to the prosecution team & longtime family friends turn against Lance as Federal witnesses testified to protect and save themselves and their futures from the same fate Lance now has received. Lance exercised his 6th Amendment right to a trial. Lance genuinely cares about & believes in the medical marijuana community as a whole. The entire court room was in complete shock when Judge Leighton sentenced Lance plus denied his Stay.
There was only one victim in this case = Lance, his family and loyal friends. Lance’s daughter, Ashley, was denied having her dad at her high school graduation June 18. Ashley left for college July 10 without being able to share a see you later hug with her dad. My parents are aging family members whom Lance was their part time care givers. As Lance’s mother I am heartbroken beyond words. Our family is incomplete without Lance. In our opinion, there was no justice served with this sentence and the denial of his stay!
Lance is currently sitting behind bars at FCI Sheridan in Oregon due to a denial of his appeal by Judge Leighton on September 8, 2016. As of Nov 25, 2016 Lance was appointed legal appellant counsel, Cynthia Jones, Jones Legal Group, Seattle, WA. Lance was denied his right to have an evidentiary hearing after his oral argument on Feb 5, 2018 with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. So Lance sat in Federal prison waiting to hear back from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on a motion he filed requesting a re-hearing from the same 3 Judges that denied him his rights to have an evidentiary hearing. Also filed was the motion for en blanc with the entire 12 Judges of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Unfortunately, Lance has been DENIED once again June 7, 2018
Have you ever been so sad that it physically hurts inside? It hurts so bad you struggle to breathe? This is my life now! It is so wrong that Lance would raise funds to feed the hungry on Thanksgiving and now he is sitting behind Federal Prison bars on Thanksgiving! My heart is totally broken and hurts for my son and the hungry. It is so wrong that Lance would organize school supply drives for the local kids of Lacey Washington, yet he is sitting behind Federal Prison bars while his precious daughter is struggling to make it financially through college without her dad’s help! My heart is totally broken and hurts for my son and my granddaughter. It is so wrong that Lance would help the needy in the community yet he is sitting behind Federal Prison bars while his aging grandparents need his care and help! My heart is totally broken and hurts for my son, my parents and the community. Pleasehelp with this very sensitive and highly important history making case involving Washington State Legal Medical Marijuana. LANCE GLOOR IS A HEALER NOT A DEALER!
President Trump, I beg you to please set my son free. He is a good person with a bright future if you will have mercy on him and our family.
