Oh NO!

A Washington state man faces felony marijuana trafficking charges after an officer found 3.3 pounds of marijuana wrapped up as Christmas gifts during a traffic stop in northern Idaho.  He was stopped because his vehicle was repeatedly changing lanes and following other drivers too closely. The officer said he smelled marijuana as he approached the vehicle. The deputy asked him what was in the presents and he stated some 'sweaters".

A drug-sniffing dog indicated the packages contained drugs and officers opened them. His 12- and 14-year-old sons, who were in the vehicle with him, were taken into custody on suspicion of frequenting, or being in the company of someone in possession of a controlled substance. The boys will not be charged.

The man has been released after posting a $20,000 bond. Records show he works at a hydroponics supply store in north Spokane, go figure.  :)
