This was a traffic stop gone terribly wrong.
With the legalization of marijuana happening in a few states (and all of Canada,) shortages have been happening around the world. One man that had absolutely no shortage of weed was Ricky Allan Martin, who was recently arrested after he was discovered to have an inordinate amount of bud in his car. The 61-year-old man was stopped by the police for a regular traffic violation but when he pulled over, they discovered that they were dealing with something else. He was travelling with 514 pounds of marijuana in the vehicle.
It's beyond me how one manages to fit so much cannabis in a car. You would think the whip would smell like a grow house at that point so it makes sense he would be stopped. It all took place in Missouri when police and their staff dogs discovered the over-500 pounds of weed in the car, arresting Martin for drug trafficking and possession of a controlled substance. The cops posed for a photo with their discovery, proudly posting up next to an insane amount of pot. Y'all think they kept some?
