Marijuana returned to Oklahoma dispensary after traffic stop

Underscore the uncertainty around new law
Marijuana returned to Oklahoma dispensary after traffic stop

Oklahoma prosecutors have dropped all charges against two people arrested for marijuana possession during a June traffic stop who contended they were delivering the cannabis for a dispensary.

The Oklahoman reports that prosecutors on Thursday authorized releasing the marijuana seized from Daniel Richard Arthur and Rebecca J. Davis, plus $5,400 in cash. Arthur and Davis, both 40, were arrested June 4 after Logan County sheriff deputies found 21 pounds (9.5 kilograms) of pot and charged with felonies for “unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute.”

The criminal case dismissals underscore the uncertainty around Oklahoma’s new medical marijuana law.

Arthur and Davis’ attorney says they were delivering marijuana from an Enid dispensary to another in Edmond. Their attorney noted the pot, appraised at $55,000, would be returned to the Enid business.
