2 indicted in alleged marijuana scheme

By Washington Post editors

Two Florida men have been indicted by a federal grand jury in a scheme in which they allegedly distributed more than 100 kilograms of marijuana in Maryland with an approximate street value of $8 million.

Pierre Smith, aka “P,” 37, of Coconut Beach, Fla., and Clifton Domond, 31, of Miramar, Fla., were indicted late Monday.

According to the five-count indictment, from July 2007 to March 22, the defendants traveled between Florida, Maryland and elsewhere to sell more than 220 pounds of marijuana. The value of the marijuana the pair sold is estimated to be at least $8 million.

Both defendants face a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison for conspiracy to distribute 100 kilograms or more of marijuana; 40 years in prison for distributing marijuana; and five years in prison on each of three counts for traveling between Florida, Maryland and elsewhere to distribute drugs.

Wow, 40 years in prison for selling a plant. These two guys are going to kick themselves after California legalizes mj in November.

jkampanos and millionea7- "Legalizing it" does not equal selling it whenever and wherever one wants. If legalization takes place, the industry will be heavily regulated and I guarantee these guys would still go to jail for their road trips. Besides, a lot of the incentive to do this would have been taken away in the first place if it were legal. There's no way they'd be able to sell that much at that price when people could buy legally from other sources.

Over $2200 per ounce? Man, either it's been a long time since college or their estimation of the street value is WAY off.

Even in recession, those prices are outrageous. Forget the puff, puff and just pass...

40 years? really?! it's illegal i know, but putting these gentlemen in jail WILL do MORE harm than good for both parties all around, well, except those perverts who invest stock into jails.

street value of $800000 sounds more realistic...
