SALINA, Kan. –

Saline County sheriff’s deputies arrest two men from Virginia who they say were carrying marijuana products from Colorado.

The Saline County sheriff says a deputy was running radar on I-70 Thursday evening, and saw a vehicle driving in the passing lane, which is against state law. When the deputy stopped the driver, the deputy noticed the smell of marijuana.

A canine was brought in to go through the car. Investigators say they found a large quantity of edible pot products. The men were taken to the Saline County jail and face charges including drug possession.

Investigators say the men went to Denver, and they believe they were bringing the products back to their business in Virginia. They say they do not know if the men intended to sell the products.

The Saline County sheriff says this is the third or fourth case like this in the past week, with people coming from Colorado, getting pulled over for traffic violations and officers discovering drugs that are legal in Colorado, but illegal in Kansas.

It isn’t just Kansas, either. Other surrounding states to Co are having fun with the problem.

I have noticed that some of the pressures in the village have diminished also. The sheriff’sofficers seem more inclined to monitor, rather than investigate, and incidents of confrontation are lessened.

For what that means, I don’t know. The mean age of use seems to ve lower, however.

It will be interesting to see if the use recedes to historical percentages of the population – or near to a good estimate of the percentage of users.

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
