Chris Brown
tested positive for marijuana recently in Virginia, where smoking weed is illegal, but the judge said she would NOT revoke his probation.

Chris was just in court for a probation progress report hearing in his felony battery of Rihanna -- and according to probation report docs ... Brown failed a drug test on June 18 in Virginia, where he was fulfilling his court ordered community service.

According to the probation report, Chris told his probation officer he had smoked weed in California -- where he has a medical marijuana prescription -- and then failed the test in Virginia, where weed is illegal ... prescription or no prescription.

Judge Patricia Schnegg said she never ordered Brown to undergo mandatory drug testing as part of his probation, so she cut him a break ... this time ... letting him off with a stern reminder to obey all laws.

Schnegg also ordered Brown's entire case moved back to California because that's where he lives now.

Judge Schnegg also ordered Brown to meet with his probation officer within 72 hours to sort out a discrepancy in community service hours -- prosecutors say he had 121 hours left to complete as of August 15th, but Chris' attorney, Mark Geragos insists he has less than that on his tab.

Wow, TMZ, I'm so disappointed, all those pics you snapped of Linds doing her CS, yet you didn't get any shots of Brown? Let's hope the reason is because the POS blew off his CS and is now going to land in jail with Bubba the LURVE mate.

Send this piece of trash to prison where he belongs. Lets see how tough he is when he has to deal with men. He isn't going to be so bad when he realizes there are no women to smack around. His punk ass will get the beat down he deserves.

He did *NOT* do 6 months of hard labor - this was the reason they pushed to get his punishment done in Virginia instead of L.A. - small town sherriff's can be paid off when the paparazzi cameras leave town. Chris did 2 days of hard labor and the rest of the time he sat around the sherriff's office writing checks while they wrote out reports saying he did his hard labor for the day.

So tired o him getting the royal treatment because he is a Celebrity. Any regular person would have been behind bars for beating up a woman, breaking windows, stealing cell phones, and drinking up all nite in the clubs. I guess money rules everythang!

I like this judge, amiable and reasonable, doesn't come off as arrogant or overly impressed with her own position of authority, she's a good example for other judges.

Chris Brown has a medical marijuana card? More proof that anyone can claim they have a disease that allows them to smoke pot. Its disgusting.

TMZ is trying too hard to make this seem scandalous - there was just a lot of confusion between L.A. probation and Virginia. Judge acknowledged that she's satisfied and he's doing everything right.... I hate to defend him, but he's obviously trying.

This is so much bullchit. He should have been arrested, charged and sentenced to prison for a violent assault. All this community service, and transferring chit between states, it's bullchit and unnecessary. It's politicial bullchit, and it costs the tax base for those services. Eliminate the political style of government, and move to a corporate style.
