Former Manhattan prosecutor David Leung busted on charges of selling marijuana to undercover informant

 Cops said they found seven bags of pot on the floor of the car Leung was driving and two large bags of weed in the trunk. The marijuana totaled more than 8 ounces.
























LOS ANGELES, CA - SEPTEMBER 7:  Marijuana plants grow at Perennial Holistic Wellness Center, a not-for-profit medical marijuana dispensary in operation since 2006, on September 7, 2012 in Los Angeles, California. A group of activists have submitted about 50,000 signatures in an effort to force a referendum on a marijuana dispensary ban in Los Angeles to take effect next week. A minimum of 27,425 valid signatures from registered voters is needed to let voters decide on the issue in March, and until the number can be verified, the ban will not be enforced. . The ban would not prevent patients or cooperatives of two or three people to grow their own in small amounts. Californians voted to legalize medical cannabis use in 1996, clashing with federal drug laws.  (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)

A former Manhattan prosecutor has gone from dealing out justice to dealing pot, cops said.
David Leung, 44, a New York County assistant district attorney from 1993 to 2004 under Robert Morgenthau, was busted on charges of selling marijuana to an undercover informant.
The accused pot peddler slipped the informant an envelope with two bags of weed in exchange for $200 during a Sept. 27 drug deal on E. Ninth St., according to the criminal complaint.
Cops said they found seven bags of pot on the floor of the car Leung was driving and two large bags of weed in the trunk. The marijuana totaled more than 8 ounces.
