Ohio Priest Gets Probation for Growing Pot

AKRON, Ohio - A Roman Catholic priest received two years of probation Tuesday for growing marijuana in his church residence. The Rev. Richard Arko, 40, pleaded guilty to two counts of illegal cultivation of marijuana related to 35 plants in the rectory of Prince of Peace Roman Catholic Church.



Summit County Common Pleas Judge Patricia Cosgrove also ordered Arko to undergo random drug testing and perform 100 hours of community service.


Cosgrove asked Arko why he jeopardized his career by growing marijuana. Arko said he strongly believes in the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes and has seen it benefit people with illnesses. He said he looked forward to the day when it would not be illegal.


Arko said it's unlikely he will be able to continue as a priest, but hopes he can "move on in my life and continue to serve others."


Police arrested Arko in January after they searched his living quarters in Barberton, about eight miles southwest of Akron.


Church officials put Arko on paid leave after the arrest.

Why wasn't he sent to prison like the other million people for growing?

why cant you just be happy that a person is gettong off with something pretty easily? some of us druggies are so hard to please, either its 'down with the system' or 'thats so unfair'. who cares really? at least he seems to be pretty motivated to 'sprading the word' if you know what i mean. so more power to us.

I bet that the prosecuters will try to connect the weed with the abuse of the child.

What is it with priests and little boys. I swear, the Apocalypse is coming. The priests of the world are being replaced by male-loving demons!
