It’s starting to get confusing, now. Out of jail, in jail, released from jail, going directly to jail. Steve Kubby was just sentenced back to prison. This time it’s not directly for drug charges, but for moving to Canada in order to stay alive.:
Medical marijuana activist Steven Wynn Kubby is heading back to jail after a Placer County judge sentenced the former gubernatorial candidate to 60 days behind bars Tuesday.
Kubby, 59, received the 60-day sentence for violating his probation by moving to Canada in 2001 rather than serve a 120-day term following a conviction for possession of psilocyn and mescaline in Placer County. Kubby said he went to Canada because he would have died in jail without marijuana to treat adrenal cancer.
The picture’s becoming clear on this one: Law enforcement officials involved are considerably more compassionate than those sitting on the bench.
