Josh Rosenthal has refereed MMA at the highest level, including the UFC, where he reffed many times, including a world heavy weight title bout between Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin. The referee was also praised by UFC President, a rare occasion in this sport.

Today the referee however finds himself in a difficult situation and will most likely end up in jail due to his involvement in a high level drug operation:

Veteran MMA referee Josh Rosenthal awaits sentencing after pleading guilty to conspiracy to manufacture and distribute marijuana and possession with intent to distribute.

One year ago, federal agents raided an Oakland, Calif., warehouse owned by Rosenthal and an associate that contained 1,356 marijuana plants, according to a copy of the agreement, which MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) obtained from the U.S. District Attorney's office in Oakland.

The drug's street value was estimated at more than $6 million.

When was the last time he actually reffed?

Seems like he's been gone for a while.

Anyone else feel that whenever Josh is reffing a fight, it always looks like he's trying not to laugh?

Feds should be embarassed. They got better things to do, like shoot in the head the guy or guys who set the bombs in my hometown on Monday.

With that many plants, wonder why he didn't have an official growers license and/or open a dispensery.  It is California, after all.

When they say street value do they mean what they can sell their product for, or the general 10$, or like 200 an oz.

I'm wondering the same thing. If so, I hope he's able to sue and get out of it (unlikely).

America's economy is in the shitter, so naturally the smartest thing to do is to keep dumping money into prosecuting the growers of our biggest cash crop becaue *gasp* people like the stuff.

They usually use a very small increment, like by the 8th or something, which is why the numbers end up so high. They also often include in the weight parts of the plant that are waste material, like trim and stem.

not with almost 1,400 plants

pretty sure there are restrictions on the amount of plants u can grow if u have a license to grow medical mary jane

and I am fairly certain almost 1,400 plants is a no-no even with a medical growing license
