MORRIS COUNTY A former doctor told a judge in New Jersey that he's "guilty as sin" of growing marijuana and smoking 30 joints a day.
Edwin Struve told a judge in Morris County he had 58 marijuana plants in his Chatham home that he's been cultivating since he came home from the Army in 1968.
The Daily Record of Parsippany reports Struve and his lawyer said Struve used marijuana to relieve the effects of glaucoma and mild brain damage.
Officials are seeking to have the judge place Struve under supervised probation in the Morris County Prosecutor Office's mental health program.
The program uses therapy, counseling and medication to address psychiatric problems behind the commission of crimes.

Has this guy harmed anyone? If not then leave him alone and stop wasting taxpayer dollars enforcing a ridiculous prohibition! I'm glad this guy is unrepentant; he did nothing wrong!

AMAZING. I'm glad he told us his secret medicine.
now I find that less disturbing than the nurses getting addicted to pain killers.
I don't see anyone admitting to being on illegally obtained pain killers for 40 years.
