People v. Hall, 227193

Terms of defendant's probation bar him from possessing firearms or illegal drugs are affirmed over defendant's claim these conditions on his release are unconstitutionally vague on their face, because they do not explicitly define the state of mind, or mens rea, required to sustain a violation of probation, where the probation conditions already include an implicit requirement of knowing possession, and thus afford defendant fair notice of the conduct required of him.
