Man smokes weed in courtroom while pleading for legalization

A 20-year-old man was arrested Monday after police said he smoked marijuana in a Wilson County courtroom in front of a judge

Spencer Alan Boston was called to the podium in front of Judge Haywood Barry on a simple drug possession charge, according to Wilson County Sheriff Robert Bryan.

Boston was apparently expressing a viewpoint that marijuana should be legalized at the podium. He then is accused of reaching into a pocket and pulling out a marijuana cigarette, lighting up and smoking, police said.

Then, Boston turned around to make a comment to those sitting in the courtroom and officers immediately took him into custody, Bryan said.
