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.

SO what, Rihanna actually twitters her pot-smoking sessions. She is no better than him, and she started the physical altercation between the two. I'd like to see her get punished.

And he needs a medicinal marijuana prescription for what exactly? I guess it pays to be a celebrity so you can smoke pot and get away with it. Why didn't Lohan ever try to get one. Could've made her life and lies so much easier.

In summary:

- Violent criminal receives felony conviction for beating up girlfriend
- However, since violent felon happens to be a celebrity, he avoids jail time
- Violent felon violates probation for failing drug test
- However, since violent felon aka probation violator happens to be a celebrity, he avoids jail time

I didn't know he has cancer or another terminal illness. That IS the only reason for a medical marijuana prescription, right? No law-abiding doctor would write a prescription for anything else, I'm sure. Get well, Chris. You may be an egotistical woman-beater, but no-one deserves to die from a terrible illness.
