And for having more than 500 grams of cannabis in his car. In Peoria Heights, Illinois a 23 year old man, Dustin B. Weber, if convicted, could be staring a prison sentence of at least two years in the face.
Not only did Weber fail to click his left turn signal, he also was driving an uninsured vehicle, which is was certainly not a wise decision, considering the amount of cannabis on his person. This is the second bone-headed driver/seller of the nug this week.
As I’ve stated before, it’s rather obvious and should be sensible that when transporting herb, you don’t give the 5-0 an excuse to pull you over. That said, it always seems a little shady to me that people with this amount of nug are pulled over for “traffic violations” and then the cops just happen to find large sums of cannabis.
Cops get all sorts of tips from NARCs and all the time. It wouldn’t shock me if every time one of these “traffic violations” occur, the cops knew exactly who they were pulling over, and what he or she had in his or her vehicle.
