HONOLULU (AP) — A federal judge has upheld a ruling ordering the founder of the Hawaii Cannabis Ministry to remain behind bars without bail until his trial on marijuana charges. U.S. Attorney spokesman Elliot Enoki says U.S. District Court Judge Leslie Kobayashi on Tuesday affirmed a June ruling by a federal magistrate judge. Christie's lawyer appealed that decision and asked Kobayashi to release his client on bond to a halfway house. Federal prosecutors allege the Hilo resident led a major cannabis growing, processing and distribution ring. Authorities contend his 2010 arrest put a major dent in the Big Island's marijuana trade.
