Man With Prescribed Marijuana Gets Probation
ANNISTON, Ala.—A man arrested a year ago in Anniston for having a legal prescription of marijuana has signed a plea agreement that calls for unsupervised probation and plans to return to California.
Michael Lapihuska was arrested in December 2009 on possession of marijuana charges, after being detained by a police officer for allegedly hitchhiking. The former Anniston resident has been awaiting trial, but signed the plea agreement Monday.
Lapihuska says he’s eager to go back to California where he can get his prescription in a safe environment. He says the marijuana was prescribed to help him cope with post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and depression.
