HARRIAN LAW OFFICE IS a law firm that has helped marijuana users around the country.
Now, it’s facing up to 10 years in prison for a similar crime.
Joshua J. Harrian, 38, was arrested last year in Colorado for violating state law by selling marijuana to an undercover agent.
When he pleaded guilty, prosecutors said, he had a history of using marijuana.
Prosecutors argued in a motion to dismiss the case that Harrian’s actions were more like selling cigarettes than selling marijuana.
But the defense attorney argued that Harran’s conduct was legal because he sold it as a gift and not as a medical marijuana dispensary.
He also said that Harria did not have a “criminal history” and did not appear to have been under the influence of marijuana at the time of the crime.
In an interview, Harrian said that he would be surprised if he didn’t get 10 years.
But when asked if he was surprised, Harria responded, “I mean, that’s just how it is.”
In March, a judge in Denver convicted Harrian of trafficking in marijuana and marijuana-related paraphernalia, a felony.
Prosecutors said that while Harrian was a medical cannabis patient, he sold the marijuana for his own use.
Harria also sold other drugs to undercover agents and paid for them to be delivered to him.
In November, a Colorado judge sentenced Harrian to 10 to 20 years in state prison for selling marijuana, but he was released in March.
