As reported in the Sucka Free City article “Stop Snitching,” the federal trial of medical marijuana activist Ed Rosenthal has been bizarre. Read on for a few choice bits from trial transcripts.

Rick Watts had to be hauled into court by the cops, where he took the stand as a hostile witness. He was determined to help the prosecution as little as possible, as is evident from this typical exchange:

PROSECUTOR: The next check is for $5000 cash payable to Pineapple, or for Pineapple, isn't that one of the nicknames of one of the marijuana vendors, Pineapple?

WATTS: Could be.

PROSECUTOR: Do you know a man by or a lady by the name of Pineapple?

WATTS: No. That's a fruit.

PROSECUTOR: I understand it's a fruit. But even though it's a fruit, was there a person named Pineapple —

WATTS: Not that I know of.
