The activists are Lindsey and Josh Rinehart and Sarah Caldwell. All three of them are leaders in the group Compassionate Idaho, which advocates for the legalization of medical marijuana in Idaho. The activists were on a trip, but when they got back to the Rinehart residence, their sons were gone. While Caldwell’s two sons are back with her, the Rineharts’ sons remain in foster care.
“They took my children. Due to cannabis being present in the house,” said Lindsey Rinehart, the executive director of Compassionate Idaho. “They say their goal is to return our children to our home once it is deemed safe. They say our children will be in foster care for 30 days.”
