By halving the prison sentence of Pamela Snowhite Davis to one year, a three-judge panel has brought her sentence more in line with the gravity of her crime. She may not have received the vindication she craved, but the panel partially agreed with her contention that the original sentence handed down by county Circuit Court Judge Raymond E. Beck Sr. was overly harsh.When Judge Beck decreed that Davis serve two years in prison for her conviction for possessing less than an ounce of marijuana, for maintaining a common nuisance and for possession of drug paraphernalia, he was really punishing her for her strident advocacy to legalize marijuana.
