UMD pharmacologist pleads guilty to growing pot
A former University of Maryland pharmacologist pleaded guilty Thursday to growing marijuana at his Baltimore home, but he will avoid jail time under a plea agreement, The Baltimore Sun reports.
Clinton B. McCracken, 33, was charged with multiple drug counts in September after his 29-year-old fiancee and fellow pharmacologist, Carrie John, died after injecting what she and McCracken thought was the narcotic buprenorphine.
McCracken had ordered bogus drugs from an online pharmacy in the Philippines, the Sun reports.
John died from an allergic reaction to the drug. McCracken was sentenced to five years, with all but the two days he already spent in jail suspended. He faces deportation to his native Canada.
