Ex-Griz QB Sentenced to 2 Years on Drug Conviction
Federal agents raided three of Washington's businesses, including a large marijuana grow operation
MISSOULA — An ex-University of Montana quarterback has been sentenced to two years in prison on drug charges related to his medical marijuana business.

Jason Washington's sentencing Wednesday follows a conviction on conspiracy to manufacture and distribute marijuana and possession with intent to distribute.

Federal agents raided three of Washington's businesses in November 2011, including a large marijuana grow operation. Six others were indicted with him, five of whom pleaded guilty to conspiracy to maintain a drug-involved premises.

The Missoulian reports prosecutors had proposed a five-year prison sentence for Washington.

He argued he complied with the state's medical marijuana law, but U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen told him he went over the line.

Federal prosecutors say Washington and dozens of others prosecuted in the two-year medical marijuana crackdown were drug traffickers.
