Addiction Based Plea Bargaining

Judge harshes pot dealer's mellow by refusing him one last joint

Someone needs to counsel Damaine Mitchell on the concept of plea bargaining. Appearing before Judge Melba Marsh on a marijuana trafficking charge, the 19-year-old from Westwood, Ohio, was presented with the option of a treatment program that would erase the crime from his record. But he couldn't get his head around the idea of giving up pot, even for a week, without an incentive beyond avoiding jail. So he asked if he could smoke one last joint before giving rehab a go. "No," said an exasperated Marsh. "You can't have one more joint for old times' sake." Justice is not only blind, Damaine, it's a bummer, too.
