28 Pounds of Pot Seized from Pa. Man

A Pennsylvania man with ties to Montgomery and Bucks counties is stopped in Oklahoma for allegedly carrying large amounts of marijuana.

One Pennsylvania man should have used more caution when changing lanes Friday.

Casey Sharp Ward, 21, of various addresses in Montgomery and Delaware counties of Pennsylvania, was stopped in El Reno, Oklahoma after a Canadian County deputy sheriff noticed him change lanes without a signal.

That wasn't all he noticed.

"When the deputy approached the car, he smelled the strong odor of marijuana," according to a report from NewsOn9.com

With that suspicion in mind, the deputy called in a drug-sniffing dog. Before long, 28 pounds of marijuana was found in Ward's vehicle's trunk.

Sheriff Randall Edwards told KFOR local television news, "It didn’t take a whole lot of investigating once the deputies smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle."

The Pennsylvania man was, according to Channel 6 Oklahoma's Own, charged with "marijuana trafficking, conspiracy to commit a felony, and concealing drug proceeds."

so many people saying weed is bad for you..I need to know how so? Its interesting that some of you say weed is bad for you but say that you use it daily or whenever your aches and pains and ills. lots and lots of clinical studies have been done in other countries that do allow the use of mmj..have you thought to check those out at all? here let me post the link. http://www.calgarycmmc.com/grannyslista.htm Pick your ailment and see the clinical trials that were done.. Have fun with that. America isnt known for looking out for its people just look at the current GMO situation..and if that isnt good enough think about how it took america 500 years to say ciggs are bad for you..You cant depend of the church or the gov to tell what is and isnt good for you..do the research then post a reply.

It doesnt sound like your okay with knowing that your medicine might get you locked up. But it doesnt sound like you want it to change either. Isnt this a quality of life issue for you? If you have to use zanx to manage your anxiety your putting your self at elevated risk that dont exhist with weed. If you have to also take vicodine or ativans or percs or even nurotin for your pain..you are doing serious damage to your liver and stomach. Why would you have such a non chalant attitude torwards the legalization of your medication? Its not okay to deny people something they need so much. Tobacco has a PHYSICAL addition rate of 32% weed doesnt. There too many other people like yourself that would more than benefit from legislation like this..dont be afraid to speak up a little louder, we the people make our laws in pa..they must vote how we say vote or get out of office..you cant be prosecuted for saying that you are in favor of legalization. ..wishing you a better quality of life and a louder voice....

"Marijuana is bad stuff." I would like to know where you get your facts. The only thing bad is the prohibition on this miracle plant. I can back my claims...can you? http://www.cannabisresearchaz.com/

No one mentioned it yet, however many governmental agencies are worried about taxing pot, missing out on tax collections, etc... And how about alcohol and what it does to your body versus pot? If legalized in PA, i would replace my liquor for pot asap.
