A Pasadena Man Was Arrested With A Garbage Bag Full Of Cannabis He Said Was For Everyone

James Miles was arrested in Pasadena on Saturday evening when he was found with a garbage bag full of cannabis. The 64-year-old man told police that the contents weren't his - it was for everyone.

Pasadena Police received a report around 4:30 claiming that a man was walking the streets with a large plastic bag full of cannabis. How did they know there was weed in there? Because it was literally falling out of a hole and spilling on to the street.

Police found Miles with a bag containing nearly 21 pounds of what Lt. Pete Hettema described as stems and remnants of the plant, not quality marijuana, states Pasadena Star-News.

Miles told police that the bag had been left behind by someone else, and the cannabis inside was for everyone. He said people had been helping themselves to it earlier.


Late last year, Michigan became the first midwestern state to legalize adult recreational cannabis use. Unfortunately, Michigan is still figuring out the rules for recreational cannabis sales, which means you can’t actually purchase any yet. While those rules are expected by June, a new report paints a rosy picture of the future of legal recreational cannabis in Michigan and the midwest.
