Former SF pot club owner Kenneth Hayes (pictured here in 1999), whose Sixth Street dispensary, the Harm Reduction Center, was raided by federal agents in 2002, was sentenced to six months of home confinement today by a federal judge. Hayes' co-defendent, Oakland marijuana advocate Ed Rosenthal got probation, despite a federal law stating that he should get at least five years in prison for supplying Hayes with his pot. Both men existed in murky legal territory, having worked with local authorities to set up their businesses and believing they were acting within the law -- just not the federal one.

We expect that Hayes -- who now lives in San Bruno after escaping to Canada and Romania, spending years "broke and eating potatoes" while trying to avoid a prison term -- will have a quiet six months on his couch with a vaporizer and a few box sets of The Wire and Weeds to catch up on.
