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.


Ever since recreational cannabis was legalized for adult consumption across Canada in mid-October the industry has been struggling to meet demand. And that's not going to change anytime soon, according to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. In a recent interview, Trudeau admitted that the chronic cannabis supply shortages have been the biggest challenge the newly legalized industry has been facing.
