Medical Pot Advocate Returns to County Jail

Los Angeles Times, CA

Medical marijuana advocate Steve Kubby returned to Placer County Jail on Wednesday for up to two months for fleeing to Canada five years ago to avoid serving time on a drug conviction.

When his longtime effort to win Canadian asylum was rejected this year, Kubby returned and spent 40 days in jail for his 2000 conviction on possession of a psychedelic mushroom and one peyote button.

This week, a Superior Court judge sentenced the onetime Libertarian candidate for governor to an extra 60 days for violating probation.
