SACRAMENTO—A Plumas County man has been sentenced to two years in federal prison and his wife has been given a six-month term for growing marijuana at their home in a steep, wooded canyon.
Jeffre Sanderson and Alice Wiegand said they grew pot for medical and spiritual purposes, but the federal government doesn't recognize California's medical marijuana law, which allows people to legally grow and use marijuana for medical purposes.
U.S. District Judge Frank Damrell Jr. allowed Wiegand to remain free until Dec. 1 to give her time to arrange for someone to care for the couple's two young children while their parents are in prison.
What jury was behind this? Was there a jury? IF somebody can find more information it would be much appreciated!!
Have a good one!
