Robert Randall, who won a historic court case in 1976 that gave him access to federal supplies of marijuana to treat his glaucoma, has died. He was 53.
Randall died Saturday at his home in Sarasota, Fla., of complications from AIDS, which he had been fighting since 1994. A native of Sarasota, Randall attended the University of South Florida, where he earned bachelor's and master's degrees in speech and rhetoric.
