A Taliaferro County, Georgia, deputy pulled over a couple driving a motorhome and found 300 pounds of marijuana in a secret compartment under the floor. The two people were arrested during the traffic stop on I-20, reports WRDW.

Taliaferro County Sheriff Marc Richard says the motorhome was coming from California, on its way to Charleston, South Carolina, when on I-20 eastbound the motorhome began to drift into the emergency lane.

The sheriff’s deputy told the driver to pull over and he searched the motorhome and found a small amount of marijuana. The deputy noticed something odd about the floor. A further search revealed a secret compartment filled with 300 pounds of packed marijuana.

The driver was 52-year-old Seth Fennell and the passenger was 23-year-old Caitlyn Reaux. Both are in Wilkes County Jail where their charges are pending. Their motorhome was seized.

Sheriff Richards says the criminal cases and seizure of the motorhome will be forwarded to the District Attorney.

    It will become legal when big PHARMA gets their fingers into it to control and sell it. Not until then.

    The real reason that legalization of Marijuana has begun to go on a roll is because of the tax benefits proven by Co, the first state to legalize recreational marijuana. But lets be real, the real savings is the reduction of trials, arrests and incarceration of the users, while practically ignoring those who import, distribute, and sell on a grand sale. Legalization will eventually knock the bottom out of the black market. But there are still opposition groups out there who are still using “scare” tactics to try and convince the general public, that it shouldn’t be legalized. I wonder how many politicians who “puffed but didn’t inhale”, in their college days are now opposed to legalization because of contributions from the liquor lobby…. There is a man in a Tx prison, who was sentenced to two life terms (consecutive), for being in possession of 2 marijuana cigarettes. This while rapists get probation….. I love our country, but some things we just get wrong, and it is usually money at the root of it all…..

    Come to Canada everyone!

    You can buy it at the corner store, or order it online, and Canada Post will deliver it to your door – no questions asked.
    Really!
    Not bad – eh? 🙂

    I have to agree with you Ben James. Not only should marijuana be legalized, there should not be any laws telling me what I can or can’t put in my body. People should be allowed to think for themselves! We know for a fact that the cartels are making money from drugs, We know for a fact the temptation is too much for many police officers and they too are selling to make money. Our constitution was created to keep government out of our lives but some how people don’t see the harm in protecting us. Ben Franklin made a statement something like this: Those who would give up freedom for perceived safety will soon have none. If you don’t think drug busts are for the sole purpose of making money, check out some of these people. https://norml.org/library/arrest-reports/item/arrests-of-the-rich-and-famous

    Cannabis prohibition is a ridiculous waste of police, court and taxpayer resources. Cannabis prohibition enforcement is mostly just cops looking for low-hanging fruit and soft targets while major crimes like murder, rape and assault go unsolved. Data from the Center for Disease Control proves that cannabis is much safer than alcoholic beverages and tobacco products which are completely legal. Based on that fact alone cannabis should be completely legal. Cannabis prohibition wrongfully persecutes and criminalizes cannabis consumers for selecting a recreational substance that is MUCH safer than booze or cigarettes!

    In the USA 9 states have fully legalized recreational cannabis including: Washington, Maine, California, Vermont, Massachusetts, Nevada, Colorado, Oregon, Alaska plus Washington DC. Canada, Uruguay, Jamaica all completely legal for recreational cannabis!

    31 states and counting have legalized “medical” cannabis!

    Celebrate democracy at work with FREE states ending government corruption! Citizens demanding the return of their rights and their freedom!

    The Madness is over, Legalize Recreational Cannabis Nationwide!

      I love these places that legalize the use of pot, but, it is still illegal to buy or is it to sell only? I’m sooo confused, and I don’t use it.
