Bernard Noble was visiting his father in New Orleans 3 ½ years ago when two cops spotted him riding a bicycle. They stopped Noble, frisked him and found a small amount of marijuana — the equivalent of two joints.
Noble, a 47-year-old truck driver and father of three, is now serving a 13-year prison sentence after a jury found him guilty of marijuana possession. It was his fifth drug-possession conviction. He originally was sentenced to five years, but Orleans Parish District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro Jr. appealed and got a longer sentence.
Mr Noble was found with three grams of marijuana in his pocket. For this he received 13 years in prison. At the same time Alaska on legalizing marijuana, already Colorado and Washington State made.
