Just One More Hit, Your Honor! A judge’s offer to allow an Ohio drug defendant the chance to stay out of prison if he’d give up marijuana might have just gone up in smoke. Hamilton County Judge Melba Marsh says she was shocked by the response from 19-year-old Damaine Mitchell. Mitchell told the judge he likes smoking weed and staying off it so he could stay out of prison would be “a challenge.” He told the judge he could try to quit but made a request: Could he “at least get one more joint in?” The judge quickly said no. She wants Mitchell back in court next week before she decides on sentencing.
Are you frickin’ kidding me!
You know how they say “Honesty is the Best Policy”? Yeah, this is one of those times where that expression is NOT one to base your answer on. You asked the judge if you could chief down just one more hogleg? “Hey, Your Honor. Let’s work this a deal. I’ll say yes if you let me spliff out one more time behind the courthouse.” Hell, you may as well have just pulled a bong out and started hitting it WHILE she was talking to you. Who was your lawyer? Snoop Dogg? “Yeah, ummmm, your honor-izzle….my cliz-ient has a que-zestion fo you. Go ahead, lil homie.” Why not just walk up to the judge and slap an O-Z down on the desk and say, “Hey Judge….tell ya what…why don’t I hook you up with a good deal on this. Go ahead. Smell it.”
Come on…seriously…how the hell did the lawyer not slap the piss outta you before you even finished the question? Can you smoke one last joint? Really man? Tell ya what, as dumb as you are… when you get to prison I bet you’ll be smoking something you never thought you’d experience. It just may be enough to make you give up the hippie lettuce.
