Bro, if you’ve got that much weed in your car, you gotta watch your speed.

A Mississippi man was arrested in Illinois earlier this week after police stopped his car for speeding in a construction zone – and found a shit ton (approximately) of weed in the rear of the vehicle.

According to a press release from the Marion, Illinois police department, officers noticed a large plastic bag containing what appeared to be weed in the back of the car, and upon further investigation, discovered not one, not two, but THREE huge trash bags full of the sticky, along with 30 bottles of THC syrup and 40 vape pens.

Where the hell was this guy going with that much weed, Willie Nelson’s tour bus? Or was he just gearing up for 4/20?

Well unfortunately he never got a chance to smoke his stash (because I’m sure it was all for personal use…), and police arrested the man for manufacture/delivery of cannabis, cannabis trafficking, driving while license revoked or suspended and speeding in a construction zone.

Just couldn’t let that speeding charge go, eh?

In Illinois, it’s legal to possess up to 30 grams of cannabis flower, as long as you’re a resident of the state and it’s in a sealed, odor-proof and child-proof container from an authorized dispensary.

The legal limit for non-residents is half that of Illinois residents – so 15 grams, or approximately 37,633 fewer grams than this guy had on him.

Bet he watches his speed next time.
