This Is What $63,000 Worth Of Pot Looks Like In Ohio

Early Thursday morning Ohio State Highway Patrol pulled over a guy from LA and his buddy, they claim to have found some buds, hash oil, one Cool Tube 8 inch light, and a couple books. What makes it crazy is they are now charging him with drug trafficking and cultivation while inside of a car, not to mention claiming he possessed $63,000 worth of cannabis.

The full list of charges is possession of liquid hashish, trafficking in drugs and possession of criminal tools. He was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, cultivating of marijuana, and possession of marijuana.

Does this look like $63,000 with of marijuana to you?

No it doesn’t, the officer who gave this estimate is totally out of his mind.

Let me break it down. It looks like there are 8 bottles of tincture there, one of the most effective ways for a lot of people to medicate, especially folks with migraines and throat cancer, those bottles run between $15 to $35 so maximum cost i2 $280. There are about two and a half ounces worth of jar there, so presuming at the high end that they are full of LA top shelf meds the value of those jars would be about $800. There books are worth about $55 depending where you get them. I don’t see hash oil and the other jars look empty.

That puts it around $1100 plus the cool tube.

The craziest part, besides bad police math, is the fact that they are charging him with cultivation while he was driving inside of a car. He clearly wasn’t driving down the road in the middle of his veg cycle, and if the police had found plants you know they are posting pics of those for the world to see.

Also I’m curious to if he is a medical cannabis patient, the card that is blurred out looks like a medical cannabis card, but I’m not sure.

In closing, shame on the Ohio State Highway Patrol for using bad math to try and make it look like they are better police officers and for wasting time chasing around nonviolent marijuana smokers.
