Sympathetic judge gives pot guru one day in jail

Showing unexpected leniency, a judge sentenced “ganja guru” Ed Rosenthal on Wednesday to a day in jail for growing marijuana in violation of federal law because the pot advocate believed its cultivation was allowed under California law.

U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer said he gave the light sentence because of the “extraordinary circumstances” of the case, referring to the fact that growing marijuana for medical purposes is legal under a voter-approved California law.”
