Mit gut 30 Kilo Gras im Auto wurde in Nebraska ein Pärchen festgenommen. Die beiden sind über 80 Jahre alt und wollten das Marijuana mit einem Marktwert von 300’000 Dollar als Weihnachtsgeschenke im Land zu verteilen.
Mr. and Mrs. Jiron told the police they were traveling from their home state of California to Vermont, with a planned pit stop in Boston, and intended to distribute the drugs to family and friends as Christmas.
The use of recreational and medicinal marijuana has been legalized in several states, including California and Massachusetts, but not in Vermont, according to the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.
The couple were cited on charges of possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver and of lacking a drug tax stamp, the department said.
