Virginia judge sentenced to 30 days for growing 41 marijuana plants

A judge in Virginia has been sentenced to 30 days in jail for growing more than 40 marijuana plants in his home, according to the Associated Press.

Attorney and substitute judge James H. Allamong Jr. was sentenced on Monday after the felony charges were knocked down to a misdemeanor.

The marijuana plants were discovered by fire fighters last year who had responded to a blaze at a building near Allamong’s home. He said the plants were purely for personal use and that he used to drug to treat the pain from injuries he sustained in Vietnam.

2. Sorry for the judge ... a major buzz-kill for him

but maybe this will wake a few more people up to the absurdity of the pot
laws.

I'm happily living in OR where we have Medical Marijuana laws in place, and
a full legalization measure on the ballot in Nov.

4. Oh, god, that's insane. I'm sorry and I hope your lawyer can do something similar for you.

It is SO unfair and ridiculous that in 2012, we're still fighting this insanity. Best wishes to you from me!!
