He hasn't been sentenced yet, that's just the government recommendation. It very well could be less, but I'd still expect for him to see some time for that much pot. I do find it kind of funny that they charge him with 'conspiracy to manufacture.' I mean, there is some package and handling, but you grow marijuana.
Anyways, it's too bad this wasn't Nick Diaz, he could have claimed personal use.
"Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."
