A drug defendant stunned an Ohio court by asking if he could have one more joint while haggling over the period during which he would give up marijuana.
Damaine Mitchell, 19, wanted Hamilton County Common Pleas judge Melba Marsh to allow him a final indulgence before he attempted to refrain from using the drug - but she said no.
He was in court on Wednesday, charged with trafficking in marijuana - Mitchell is accused of selling it on June 12 in the car park of a Westwood shop.
Mitchell made no secret of his love of the drug - when the judge said she would offer him a deal which would stop him going to jail and would erase the crime from his record, in return for him giving up marijuana for a certain time period, he found it tough to accept.
'That’s going to be hard for me to do, to be honest with you,' said Mitchell. The judge told him he had to stop taking the drug until April, when he would be drug tested to see if he had lived up to his end of the bargain.
'That’s going to be a challenge,' Mitchell argued. 'I like smoking weed. I have been smoking weed since I was like 10 years old.'
