On January 20, 2019, two men from Florida were arrested in Gregg County, Texas for the possession of 200 pounds of marijuana, in addition to over 85 pounds of marijuana edibles. The arrest affidavit states that officers noticed a vehicle that was speeding on the interstate and performed a traffic stop. With the assistance of a K-9 unit, the illegal drugs were found in the vehicle and confiscated. The two men were charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana; they were taken to Gregg County Jail; and together their bonds were set at $150,000. They were arraigned the following Monday, January 21, 2019.
In today’s society, drugs are prevalent, and the consequences of possessing, manufacturing, and distributing controlled pharmaceutical substances, as well as street drugs like cocaine, are extremely steep in the state of Florida. For example, a small handful of narcotics without a prescription can bring about a mandatory three years in a correctional facility.
