So Chris Brown is on probation. We’re all familiar with how that works, right? You break a law, sometimes you go to jail, and sometimes you don’t go to jail. Sometimes you do something in between called probation, which is where you have to be extra super special good or you will go to jail. Or at least, that’s how it’s supposed to work.
Chris Brown smoked weed, took a drug test, failed it, and is still on probation, all because he’s a pretty ok dancer:
Chris Brown tested positive for marijuana recently in Virginia, where smoking weed is illegal, but the judge said she would NOT revoke his probation.
Chris was just in court for a probation progress report hearing in his felony battery of Rihanna — and according to probation report docs … Brown failed a drug test on June 18 in Virginia, where he was fulfilling his court ordered community service.
According to probation report, Chris told his probation officer he had smoked weed in California — where he has a medical marijuana prescription — and then failed the test in Virginia, where weed is illegal … prescription or no prescription.
Judge Patricia Schnegg said she never ordered Brown to undergo mandatory drug testing as part of his probation, so she cut him a break … this time … letting him off with a stern reminder to obey all laws.
Schnegg also ordered Brown’s entire case moved back to California because that’s where he lives now.
Judge Schnegg also ordered Brown to meet with his probation officer within 72 hours to sort out a discrepancy in community service hours — prosecutors say he had 121 hours left to complete as of August 15th, but Chris’ attorney, Mark Geragos insists he has less than that on his tab.
Ok, I’m not going to sit here and say that I thinking marijuana is the worst thing in the world and anyone who smokes it should be hauled off to jail immediately, but still, it’s a law, you know? It’s a law that Chris Brown broke and offered an excuse for – which, by the way, doesn’t it sound like they never even checked out that prescription? – and got away with. No matter what crime he originally committed, he’s another celebrity that’s getting off way too easy because of his fame, and that’s pretty shitty, huh?
Here’s hoping that community service thing catches up with him!
