Former marijuana activist sentenced "It's time for someone else to pick up the fight,"
Medical marijuana activist Pierre Werner remained defiant to the end Monday, calling his federal prosecution "stupid."

"It's time for someone else to pick up the fight," Werner said after receiving a stiff prison term in court. "I was the one they got their pound of flesh from. But they will never win. Marijuana will be legalized."

U.S. District Judge Philip Pro sentenced Werner to 41 months in prison for his participation in a family-run marijuana dispensary.

The time behind bars was recommended in a plea agreement Werner had struck with the government.
