MARIJUANA ADVOCATE GETS PROBATION FOR POT-SMOKING PARTY

A marijuana advocate who invited hundreds of people to his pot-smoking
party at a Philadelphia warehouse has been fined, ordered to perform
community service and sentenced to four years' probation.

Philly.com reports that Richard Tamaccio Jr. was sentenced Wednesday
after pleading guilty in January to felony drug charges. His lawyer
described him as a "true crusader" for marijuana legalization.

Prosecutors say Tamaccio was charged for facilitating the sale of
marijuana at the party last April and for possessing about nine pounds
of marijuana plants and products at his home.

The city in 2014 made possession of small amounts of the drug
punishable only by a citation and a fine, but marijuana sales weren't
decriminalized.

Twenty-one other people were also arrested at the party.
