Elderly couple tells cops 60 pounds of pot was Christmas gifts

On Tuesday, York County sheriff's deputies discovered an unconventional Mr. and Mrs. Clause. Naturally with 60 pounds of the sticky icky onboard, their truck smelled like a Snoop Dogg concert, and the officers immediately grew suspicious that the elderly couple had some marijuana in their possession.

Lt. Paul Vrbka with the sheriff's department said deputies initiated a traffic stop in the Bradshaw area after they saw a Toyota Tacoma going over the center line and the driver failing to signal. Patrick Jiron consented to a vehicle search, officials said.

Don't drive around 60 pounds worth of marijuana in a state where it's illegal. "Legalization of marijuana for any objective has proven to be a risky proposition because the controls placed on its use in other states have fallen short".

The couple told sheriff's officials that they planned to make stops in Boston and Vermont to distribute the marijuana to family and friends as Christmas gifts. "Legalization of marijuana for any objective has proven to be a risky proposition because the controls placed on its use in other states have fallen short", Nebraska governor Pete Ricketts said in 2015.
