WASHINGTON (AP) - A man known as the “Kush God” has been sent to jail after he was accused of violating probation by continuing to sell marijuana.

The Washington Post reports (https://wapo.st/2jEoo8F) 31-year-old Nicholas Cunningham was ordered Wednesday to spend 60 days in jail after prosecutors say Cunningham boasted online that he was still selling marijuana.

Cunningham pleaded guilty in March to distributing marijuana, prompting a judge to give him a suspended 180-day sentence and place him on probation.

Authorities say Cunningham then posted on Facebook and Twitter about selling marijuana in May.

Cunningham operated a fleet of vehicles - painted with images of marijuana leaves - that authorities say were used to sell pot. Cunningham says he simply gave away marijuana or pot-infused brownies in return for donations.
