Police recover 274 grams of a substance that tested positive for THC during a recent traffic stop in Texas

A Texas man charged with a single count of possessing 2.3 kilograms or less of cannabis last week claimed the weed wasn’t his despite being found in his vehicle.

Asking the driver if there were any drugs in the vehicle, the man responded, “It’s not mine,” before producing a large bag of weed from the passenger floorboard. In all, the officer recovered almost 274 grams of suspected cannabis. The man was subsequently arraigned and his bond set at $19,200.

Criminal Defence Lawyer reports that penalties for possessing 113 grams to 2.3 kilograms of cannabis in Texas could spark penalties that include a fine of as much as $12,800, between 180 and two years in prison, or both.

The man’s response for the weed being in his vehicle was somewhat less inventive than the 40-year-old Florida man who told police the trousers he was wearing — and whose pockets contained four bags, one with MDMA and one with what looked to be cannabis — belonged to someone else.

Also, driving and traffic violations that lead to cannabis discoveries have proved a windfall for police around the world. Breaches that ended with drivers on the wrong side of the law have included those seen talking on cellphones, speeding, stunt driving, not stopping at a weigh scale, having plates not associated with the vehicle and having an expired vehicle registration sticker.
