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 are tax payers paying for drug tests when it doesn't matter if celebs are positive or not?

Why even put them on probation for that matter? the courts treat them like they are above the law so why does it matter.

The only thing about this article that surprised me was his "marijuana prescription" what the hell do he have that he needs a "marijuana prescription. Government really should crack down on people that have those without any serious medical condition.

I guess in Califiornia anyone can get a medical marijuana prescription. For this woman battering low life, to have a permit for weed is a disgrace. He is a total s***bag who belongs in jail. When are the courst going to see this ahole for what he is and lock his ass up. Just another Ghetto punk who thinks he is above the law,,,, again.
