A pastor has been given a light sentence and told to sin no more after he was caught smoking marijuana. It was a shocking news for many when a self-styled evangelist and pastor was sentenced to one-day prison term by a Kumasi Circuit Court over the use of marijuana.
Adom Online reports that George Agbenyor, pleaded guilty to the offence but said the drug was for the treatment of his hernia. He was arrested by the police on May 27, and was held for more than four months in prison custody.   
While passing judgement, the court presided over by Mrs. Mary Nsenkyire took into consideration the time he spent in remand, the fact that he was a first time offender and the quantity of the drug found on him.

“Sit here, when I go, then you go home. Sin no more,” she told him.
Police Chief Superintendent, Mr. Emmanuel A. Akunnor, said the convict was arrested at Asafo in Kumasi, based upon a tip off. A search conducted by officers of the Drug Law Enforcement Unit uncovered the drug, weighing 4.57 grams.
He added that sample sent for forensic laboratory examination confirmed that it was marijuana.
