CINCINNATI —

An avid marijuana user has agreed to give up his pastime to avoid a jail sentence from a southwest Ohio judge perplexed by his reluctance.

Nineteen-year-old Damaine Mitchell got credit for time served for marijuana possession, ending that case. Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Melba Marsh convicted him of possession Monday after ruling him not guilty of trafficking. He remains jailed on a trespassing charge.

Mitchell first had to pledge to stop smoking marijuana and to seek treatment. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports ( http://cin.ci/TqVSa4) that Mitchell told her in an earlier court appearance that he doubted he could stop smoking marijuana, which he'd been doing since age 10. She had denied his request to smoke one more joint before he gave it up.
