I suppose he needed more money to buy pot. He is also due in court on pot and para charges along with contributing charges. But we all know that pot creates no violent tendencies and is certainly not addictive. Right, all you pot heads out there? Check out the dreads and facial expression on his mug.

I didn't know that !

Pot makes your hair grow like that?

Wow, who'd a thunk it!
