A minister with mail order credentials was found guilty Thursday of distributing marijuana through his Hollywood church. The Rev. Craig X Rubin, 41, the leader of the 420 Temple faces up to four years, eight months in prison for possessing marijuana for sale, said Jane Robison, a district attorney's spokeswoman. Rubin, who has appeared in the marijuana-themed TV show "Weeds," and some 400 members of his church say they believe marijuana is a religious sacrament and burn and smoke pot during services. He said he will not appeal his conviction.
