PINE LAWN, MO (KTVI) – An overnight traffic stop in Pine Lawn turns into a marijuana bust with an interesting twist.
The two suspects are now in custody. Investigators say they apparently bought the pot in Colorado where the recreational sale of marijuana is legal. The problem for the suspect is that possessing marijuana in Missouri is still illegal.
The marijuana was in neatly wrapped packages still with the price tags on it from Colorado. Some of the pot is in cookies and brownies that were found in the car that the two suspects were in.
