“Can I really get in trouble for smoking pot?”
That’s a question posted in Chapter Five of The Official High Times Pot Smoker’s Handbook. And now, a Dunnellon, FL man can answer that question with an emphatic, “totally, dude.”
Zachary Frye, pictured, was arrested Sunday night and charged with eight counts of possession of marijuana with intent to sell, ten counts of drug paraphernalia possession, and marijuana possession of more than fifty grams.
According to the Marion County Sheriff, here’s how it went down:
Someone called 911 on Sunday evening after allegedly seeing Frye trying to flag down a ride from the side of the road with a flashlight.
When police arrived, Frye told them his motorcycle had broken down. A deputy offered him a lift, but told Frye he’d have to submit to a pat down, for safety reasons. Frye consented.
The deputy says he found "a large bulge in Frye's jean pocket" which turned out to be a plastic bag of marijuana.
An inspection of the suspects' backpack allegedly turned up eight other bags of marijuana, a digital scale, a pot pipe, a glass crack pipe and a grinder. He also had with him a copy of the aforementioned hashish handbook.
Whoa, now that’s harsh.
