Agree with it or not, the law is the law. You break the law, you go to jail.

This is exactly why Marijuana needs to be legal. This person was not causing harm to anyone but himself. If it was able to be bought like cigs and beer he would not even have to put up with the dealers and their thug ways.

magerune our laws have nothing to do with the bible. The laws agents hemp started because it was starting to infringe on the lumber companys.

Please tell me that a man did not just get life in prison over a plant.

Wow the land of the free...

Say what you want about Canada but I love it here, the bible belt in the united states honestly scares me sometimes.

so.... this guy gets three meals and a cot, at the expense of taxpayers, for life, when it would be cheaper to sentence him to something lighter. hmm.

A few things. First, his crime wasn't smoking it, it was dealing it. $1600 and 2 pounds of the stuff. Second, this wasn't his first offense, but his fourth. He got off with probation on the three prior convictions, but didn't this time. Third, he wasn't given life for dealing pot, it was given life for being a repeat offender. That's a different law. A technicality, yes, but one worth mentioning.

I personally think that he should have gotten the maximum sentence allowable by law for the dealing offense, and NOT the mandatory sentence of life. That has more to do with my opinion on mandatory sentencing than on the legality debate about pot.

@xiquiripat DUI can still mean driving under the influence of drugs. So yeah, there might be plenty roaming the highways, and I'm sure many of them have been convicted for driving under the influence of drugs.

Ridiculous. No deterrence value and a huge waste of money feeding and housing this guy for the rest of his life. The law has no apparent utility and should be revised.

@green_batman: I agree. Stupid sentence. And the comments that actually condone this sentence sadden me... we still have a long way to go as a species.

I can't watch the video because I'm in public and without headphones, but, if this is one of those three strike deals, it's ridiculous. You should get punished appropriately for the crime you commit. Life in prison for four minor offenses is just lazy legislation and lazy judicial execution. The point of the human element of the judicial system is to appropriately judge the severity of a crime, rather than applying a blanket rule where it might not be appropriate. Whether you agree with marijuana being illegal or not, it is a minor offense in comparison with rape, murder, and most other crimes. To sentence a marijuana user with life in prison when other, worse crimes are getting off on parole, is just wrong.
