A Michigan man is jailed in Indiana, accused of having about 100 grams of marijuana just as Michigan legalized marijuana possession.
Johnathon Hulley, 39, Sturgis, Michigan, was arrested by an Indiana State Police trooper and jailed in LaGrange County on charges of possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia following a traffic stop on the Indiana Toll Road west of the Howe/LaGrange exit around 12:50 a.m. Friday.
The trooper purportedly smelled marijuana, leading to a police search of Hulley’s vehicle. Approximately 100 grams of pot — or about 3 1/2 ounces — were found during the search, the ISP said in a news release.
The arrest came after Michigan’s new law, allowing recreational marijuana use, took effect Thursday. Under the state law, adults ages 21 years or older can possess up to 2.5 ounces of weed. That would mean Hulley was allegedly carrying more than Michigan’s law permits.
Possessing any amount of marijuana is still illegal in Indiana. https://www.goshennews.com/news/police-news-michigan-man-busted-for-having-pot-in-indiana/article_fed5d473-5e21-5dc6-9797-50b09927478b.html
