North Carolina Man Tried To Eat His Weed When Pulled Over By Police

A 21-year-old man from Randolph County, North Carolina tried to eat his cannabis stash when he was stopped by police on Sunday night.

Randolph County police say they pulled over Travious Steele in the North Carolina town of Ramseur because of a broken headlight. When police approached the vehicle they began to smell marijuana and caught Steele trying to "destroy" the evidence by eating his weed.

Ridiculous (and unpleasant) as it is to eat raw cannabis, Steele's decision is understandable given state law. In North Carolina, getting busted with even small amounts of cannabis (e.g. half an ounce) means facing a fine of up to $2,000 and up to 45 days in jail. But his efforts only got him into more trouble as he now faces a felony charge for destruction of evidence on top of the possession charge. Which is pretty ridiculous since all he really did was plagiarize one of the best scenes from 'Super Troopers.'

President Trump's 2020 budget request includes a loophole that would let Washington, DC finally open up dispensaries for recreational cannabis. Although DC voters passed a ballot initiative to legalize recreational cannabis back in 2014, Congress has used its power over the nation's capital to prevent it from selling cannabis for recreational use. Right now, local dispensaries can only sell medical marijuana to registered patients thanks to Congress, which controls spending in the District of Columbia.
