Montgomery Seeks Felony Conviction for Pot Patient Caught With Gram of Weed in Dorm

The Maricopa County Attorney's Office is prosecuting a college student with a medical-marijuana card for felony possession of less than a gram of weed.

Andre Lee Juwaun Maestas, a 19-year-old Arizona State University student, could end up with a felony on his record, probation and stiff fines because of the March discovery of about .6 grams of marijuana and some smoking paraphernalia in his dorm room.

On the other hand, the case could also end up in Maestas' favor -- a scenario which could have the added effect of overturning a 2012 law that prohibits patients from possessing medical marijuana on college campuses.
