Lucky for him he avoided being sent to Jail for up to 10 years in Japan!
Tim Wilson, a 25-year-old Colorado man arrested last year after Japanese authorities say he conspired to have marijuana candies sent to the weed-intolerant island nation will finally be coming home, according to 9News.
The station quotes Wilson's family as saying he received a "suspended sentence" and should be back on American soil soon.
We brought you Wilson's story last November. The honors student was studying abroad and helping out with earthquake relief efforts when a friend sent him a care package containing Cheeba Chews, a popular, THC-laced treats. Wilson never received the package, but still faced up to ten years in Japanese prison, as officials said he requested that his friend send him the edibles.
The Japanese courts pointed to an e-mail between Wilson and his friend in which Wilson jokingly said it "would be a good idea" to send marijuana oversees. Wilson adamantly insisted that the joke was lost in translation and that he had never actually requested the candies be sent to him. He contends that he had no way of knowing his friend would be such a fucking moron do such a blatantly illegal thing.
No word on exactly when Wilson -- a card-carrying medical marijuana patient -- will be back in Colorado. We'll try and catch up with him when he does. But in the meantime, I hope Wilson's friend has a nice big apology bowl waiting for him.
