|Damaine Mitchell, 19, wanted one last joint before having to quit
A marijuana defendant rocked an Ohio court when he asked if he could have one last joint while haggling over the amount of time he would be forced to give up smoking cannabis.
Damaine Mitchell, 19, of Westwood, Ohio, asked Hamilton County Common Pleas judge Melba Marsh to let him have a final joint before he had to quit getting high, but the judge was having absolutely none of it, reports Kimball Perry at Cincinnati.com
Mitchell was in court on Wednesday, charged with trafficking marijuana. He stands accused of selling weed on June 12 the the parking lot of a store in Westwood, and his “crime” carries a sentence of up to 1.5 years in prison.
The defendant didn’t even try to hide his love for marijuana. When Judge Marsh said she’d offer him a deal which would prevent him from having to go to jail and would erase the “crime” from his record — in return for him giving up smoking pot for a certain time period — he found it tough to wrap his head around the idea.
“That’s going to be hard for me to do, to be honest with you,” Mitchell admitted.
