Chris Brown

Fails Drug Test

In Rihanna Case

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.

Why does a seemingly able-bodied, young and healthy man have a prescription for medical weed in the first place?

I must have missed something. Exactly what painful, chronic disease does Chris have to warrant medical marijuana???

Wow ...    

He is the perfect example as to why the Feds keep coming down on Cali for medical marijuana. It was meant for those whom are seriously ill, not punks that want to smoke. Unreal. Shame on you Chris Brown. Because of people like you, those who need it, may soon be without...

Hey TMZ you are not reporting all the facts as ROL is. They said that the judge set a hearing for November 1st to determine if he violated his probation! ROL also said that he violated his travel restrictions! I hope she does hold him in violation of his probation for one of those offenses and I hope he goes to prison where he belongs! He has already violated his probation at least twice before by throwing the chair at the GMA studios breaking the window and stealing a fan's iphone. Throw him in prison already!

Why wasn't his hair bleached? Was he trying to look like a good boy in front of the judge. I bet you he didn't forget to say please and thank you.

It is disgusting that this starstruck judge did not hold him in violation of his probation! How many times does he have to violate it before he goes to prison? Doing pot, violating travel restrictions, stealing a fan's phone and breaking the window at the GMA studios and this punk gets away with it all. For all the idiots who think Rhianna hit him first, Robin Roberts did not hit him right before he threw the chair and broke the window at GMA so obviously it doesn't take much to set him off! Robin simply asked him some questions he didn't like and he went insane. Learn it.

That's because he's a stupid, ignorant, uneducated illiterate dumbass. Keep smoking dope, loser; it's all you know...

If he was in California a few weeks ago- the metabolites from marijuana are still detectable for a few weeks. The judge seems to be taking that into account.
