Yeah, not his plants... but he's gonna be in prison for them regardless. Sucks for him. But that's the justice system for ya, they don't care who really grew them as long as they have someone to put the charges on.

Wait a minute ... Are you telling me this kid just walking around the same area the newscasters were also hanging around and they are trying to charge him with the whole operation ?? I thought he pleaded out and would just have to do some community service but this is downright corrupt !! How much time did he end up getting ?? When Wisconsin is now voting on medical use and time to show compassion and not more oppression ...

That sucks for Jake, he's such a good person! It's not his fault he found all that marijuana. People shouldn't assume he was going to do what they thought he was going to do.

Wow they really raked this boy over the coals seeing him get sentenced and got a year in jail and plus 5 years probation for a simple herb ?? My gosh man it was his first time in trouble and they knew this kid was not the oringinal troop of this plot they found so seems like some serious overkill .....
