CINCINNATI -- A judge's offer to allow an Ohio drug defendant the chance to stay out of prison if he'd give up marijuana might have just gone up in smoke.

Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Melba Marsh says she was astonished by the response from 19-year-old Damaine Mitchell on Wednesday.

The judge quickly said no. She wants Mitchell back in court next week before she decides what to do with his trafficking case.

A message left for Mitchell's attorney hasn't been returned.
