Chris Brown will be heading back to court, after failing a drug test with marijuana found in the singer’s system. A Los Angeles judge has set a hearing for November to determine whether or not Brown violated the terms of his probation.
Brown tested positive for the druge back in June while fulfilling his community service requirements in Virgina. Brown’s probation began back in 2009 after assaulting his then girlfriend, Rihanna.
The R&B singer has pulled the “medical marijuana” card (literally) after failing the drug test, claiming that he has a prescription. On Monday, Judge Patricia Schnegg told the singer:
“You are not an average person who can sit in their living room and do what you want to do. You are not only in the public eye, but you are on probation. You should be mindful of obeying all rules of the courts. A lot of people look up to you — a lot of kids. What you do and what you say impacts other people.”
Medical marijuana is a touchy subject, but could it clear him of any violations?
Brown’s ex, Rihanna, is apparently backing Brown on the potential violation as well, as she tweeted to her followers on Monday, “Praying for you baby, my best wishes are with you today! Remember that whatever God does in our lives, it is WELL DONE!!! #1Love — @chrisbrown I’m praying for you and wishing u the best today!”
According to some sites online, Rihanna has even told Chris Brown that she will go to court on November 1st, and testify on his behalf.
