Patrol finds marijuana-laced brownies at traffic stop
Does that math even make sense!? Get the hell outta here!- UA
TRUMBULL COUNTY, Oh. —
A man and woman are charged with several felonies after Ohio Highway Patrol troopers, during a traffic stop this week along Interstate 80 in Hubbard Twp., seized 20 grams of marijuana, 10 grams of hashish, 32 ounces of hash oil and four large marijuana-laced brownies all valued at nearly $63,000.
Troopers also seized drug paraphernalia and items associated with a marijuana grow operation following the stop on Wednesday. Hashish oil is a concentrated cannabinoid product with a high THC level. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, a drop or two of this liquid on a cigarette is equal to a single marijuana “joint” or cigarette.
Troopers stopped a 2003 Honda Element, with Texas registration, for a marked lanes violation at about 12:36 a.m. The trooper approached the vehicle and observed a strong odor of raw marijuana. A probable cause search revealed the drugs, paraphernalia and marijuana cultivation items that included grow lights, fertilizer, exhaust systems, seeds and industrial filters.
Bryan Joseph Candito, 25, of Los Angeles, Calif., was charged with felony possession of liquid hashish, felony drug trafficking and possession of criminal tools; and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, cultivating of marijuana and possession of marijuana.
His passenger, Danae Kaitlin Bryan, 19, of Wyomissing, Pa., was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana, both misdemeanors.
Candito and Bryan are in the Trumbull County Jail. If convicted, Candito could be sentenced up to nine-and-a-half years in prison and fined $17,500, according to the patrol.
