Pot activist gets 30 days after Windsor raid [CAN]

Pot activist gets 30 days after Windsor raid
February 28, 2009 - canada.com

WINDSOR, Ont. - Four years after a drug raid on his Windsor home netted 26 marijuana plants, a pot-legalization activist known as DaWeedKing was sentenced Friday to 30 days in jail.

``Yeah, I did it,'' Fred Pritchard, 41, told Superior Court Justice Steven Rogin at his sentencing hearing.

Pritchard, who had flown from Vancouver for his court appearance, was taken into police custody immediately and transported to Windsor Jail.

Pritchard and his family moved to British Columbia last year, where he found work for a roofing company. Life is better there, he said.

Defence lawyer Frank Miller tried an unconventional approach in defending Pritchard:He invoked the Charter of Rights and challenged the police practice of using unnamed informants to get search warrants without having to prove the informants' reliability.

Pritchard said police had either invented the informants, or the informants had concocted the information they told police. Pritchard insisted no one else had ever seen the plants growing in his basement.

The charter challenge failed, so Pritchard allowed the evidence against him to go unchallenged, in effect pleading guilty to the charges against him.

Pritchard was convicted of producing marijuana. A charge of possession for the purpose of trafficking was stayed.

Man, life must be good in Canada!  In the states it would have been more like 30 years, not 30 days

In California it would have been the same as Canada. In the federal system he would be "not more than five years" and guidelines say he would be looking at 8-16 months and he could also get a deffered probation sentence if it was determined the drugs were not for profit.

The worst part is not the fine or the jail time, but the criminal record.

Can't go abroad, can't bring your wife to Canada, can't get a good job, can't go to school, can't get a loan.

Fucked for life. It puts people who just smoke for personal use into the drug trade because they have no other choice.
