Man Gets 4 Years For Weed Possession Day Before State Legalized ItPosted by On

An Illinois man has been sentenced to four years in prison for ordering 42 pounds of marijuana-infused chocolate from California, and prosecutors believe his intention was to sell the goodies.

Thomas Franzen from suburban Chicago pled guilty to possession of upwards of 5000 grams of cannabis and received the minimum sentence, CNN reports. Franzen is suffering from testicular cancer and was given a reduced sentence in light of his medical condition, according to State Attorney Joe McMahon.

“In recognition of the seriousness of Mr. Franzen’s medical condition, our office reduced a 12-year mandatory minimum sentence to 4 years, of which he is required to serve only 2 years,” McMahon said in the statement. “We did this in spite of evidence that proves that Mr. Franzen is a drug dealer.”
