One man stood in front of a judge in Hamilton, Ohio, facing marijuana trafficking charges, and reportedly asked the judge if he could “get one more joint in” before he began his jail time. He says he’s been smoking marijuana since the age of 10 and when the judge told him that he’d have to refrain from getting high for six months or more, he said he wasn’t sure he’d be able to do it.
It was an honest answer and one that highlights just how gripping the hold of addiction can be. Even facing charges, the young man knew he would have difficulty upholding the court’s orders.
