VANCOUVER -- An American pot activist who launched an intense legal fight against extradition to the U.S., has quietly settled her legal and immigration issues.

After negotiating a plea agreement of simple possession of marijuana with U.S. prosecutors, Renee Boje dropped her extradition appeal in B.C. and returned to California from B.C. last month.

She had faced a prison term of 10 years to life in connection with a medical marijuana grow operation.

Her lawyer, John Conroy, said instead of that sentence a U.S. judge gave Boje one year's probation without supervision if she remains in Canada.

The judge ordered that if she goes back to the U.S. for more than 72 hours during that one-year probation period she would have to report to a supervisor.

"It's a good resolution," Conroy said. "She wanted to go through the immigration process ( in Canada ) and these appeals had to be abandoned."

The appeal of a decision ordering Boje back to California was officially dropped yesterday in the B.C. Court of Appeal.
