HEARING DELAYED FOR 'POT REFUGEE' IN CANADA

Canadian immigration officials put off a political refugee hearing for a 
month after a California medical marijuana patient fighting deportation was 
hospitalized over the weekend with pneumonia.

Steve Kubby, 56, fighting adrenal cancer that he says he needs pot to 
control, was suffering with a 102-degree fever and skyrocketing blood 
pressure, said his wife, Michele.

Kubby's hearing began Wednesday in Vancouver. A refugee board member 
delayed resumption of the hearing until April 8, but asked that Kubby 
provide a written update from a physician.
