"unlikely to re-offend". How is smoking weed everyday mean they won't? Doesn't that entail them immediately going and re-offending the very next day? And the next day and the next day ...

@FBE: I think there are specialists who can tell whether the offender has really got off weed, and is unlikely to do drugs again.
