This is just unbelievable…
A Nevada judge has issued a homework assignment in the form of an unusual sentence for a 25-year-old Sacramento man who sold marijuana to a police informant in a casino parking lot at Lake Tahoe.
District Judge Dave Gamble ordered Matthew Palazzolo to write a report on what the judge called the “nonsensical character” of California’s medical marijuana law.
Gamble gave Palazzolo 90 days to complete the paper discussing his self-admitted realization that marijuana was a gateway drug that led him to use more powerful narcotics.
The judge clearly has some strong views about marijuana.
Palazzolo, who works for a law firm in Sacramento, admitted he grew it after obtaining a medical marijuana card. […]
“So you decided to grow your own?” Gamble asked. “If this isn’t testimony to the absolute asininity of medical marijuana laws in California and the path Nevada is choosing.”
OK. I really, really, really want that report. 90 days will make it somewhere around Thanksgiving, unless he gets it done earlier.
I’m hoping it’ll be made public, or one of my readers will have access and get it to me. Seriously.
I plan on grading it.
