An Illinois man with stage 4 cancer has been sentenced to prison for ordering 42 pounds of THC-infused chocolates.
Thomas Franzen, 37, pleaded guilty to possession of more than 5,000 grams of cannabis in exchange for a 4-year prison sentence.
According to prosecutors, Franzen “sought to sell” the chocolate. However, Franzen’s defense attorney claims he purchased to self-medicate from stage 4 cancer symptoms like nausea.
Franzen will appear back in court on June 14th to hear when he will begin serving his prison sentence.
