U.S. national, Robert Blackford, pleaded guilty to possession of two hundred and six grams of cannabis when he appeared before Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford this morning.  For his guilty plea, Magistrate Ford fined him one thousand dollars plus five dollars cost of court, which he is required to pay by December thirtieth. Failure to pay would land the sixty-four-year-old behind bars for ten months.
