Elderly Couple Arrested With 60 Pounds Of Marijuana; They Say It Was For Christmas Gifts

Someone’s Christmas is ruined.

During a traffic stop, the York County, Nebraska sheriff’s department discovered 60 pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of $336,000 inside the Toyota Tacoma of a couple in their 80s.

When questioned, the couple said that the marijuana was meant to be given away as Christmas gifts.

Here’s a picture of the Sheriff’s officers with the weed. Note the jar of Cheese Balls that was repurposed as a stash container.

An 80-year-old man and an 83-year-old (who said that they were from Clearlake Oaks, California) were arrested on suspicion of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver - and no drug tax stamp. Bah humbug.

Latest.

It’s no secret that my husband and I are longtime cannabis and hemp advocates. We’ve cheered as the majority of Americans have come around to supporting legalization, and applauded as cannabis law reform spreads from state to state. Still, decades of prohibitionist propaganda have left many in the dark about the powerful wellness potential of these long-demonized plants.

Can we see some ID please?
