"If defendant's health and obesity 'effectively confines him to his home,' then continuation of that restriction will not adversely affect him."

That pharmacist must have eaten the wrong pills. To imprison some schmuck who weighs that much would be an awful burden on any prison. It would financially hurt his local grocery store. If he croaked in the cell they would not get him through the doorway.
