ASPEN, Colo. (AP) – A judge says a man convicted of breaking into an Aspen pharmacy to try to steal oxycodone can’t use marijuana for medicinal purposes while on probation.

The Aspen Times reports Nathan Benner, 23, had sought permission to use marijuana to cope with shoulder pain. Otherwise, using pot would violate terms of his deferred sentence over the 2009 break-in.

Pitkin County District Judge Gail Nichols rejected Benner’s request Monday. She suggested Benner take up yoga or some other method of dealing with pain instead.
