Man Arrested on Marijuana Possession Charges in Canton

The following information was provided by the Canton Township Police Department. Arrests do not indicate convictions.

Canton Township Police checked a parking area behind Trip Kings Poker Room, 8669 N. Lilley, on Nov. 12 after spotting a man parked in a silver Lexus for a prolonged period of time, according to a police report.

Because the man was parked in the dark and because the lot has a history of drug activity, police made contact with the man, the report said.

The man told police he was waiting in the lot for his friend to come out of Trip Kings so he could drive her home, the report said.

Police found the man had a felony warrant for delivery and manufacturing of marijuana and refusing to obey a police order with the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office, the report said.

Police took the man into custody so Washtenaw County Police could pick him up, the report said.

While searching the man’s car, police found a thin cigar filled with a green substance police suspected to be marijuana located between the front driver’s seat and center console, the report said. 

Police recovered a zipped baggie full of a green substance also suspected to be marijuana from the glove box of the vehicle, the report said.

Police arrested the man on charges of marijuana possession and his vehicle was impounded, the report said.

The substance field tested positive as 5.8 grams of marijuana, the report said.

Thankfully, this desperado will appear in court to answer for this heinous offense. Thus, saving America's women and children from a degenerate such as this. This is pathetic. Law enforcement needs to re-direct its focus on crimes... to those that are REAL crimes. I spent 5 years in Federal Prison for a marijuana offense. While I was there, I watched armed bank robbers come and go in as little as 20 months. After 3 years 'behind the wall,' I pointed this out to the parole board. Their response: “You must understand, yours was a very serious offense.” How do you respond to that mentality? I laughed about the parole panel's comment for 2 more years (as I still sat in prison), then wrote my book: Shoulda Robbed a Bank No, it is not a treatise on disproportionate sentences ...but tales of the escapades that led to my incarceration. I admit, I had a great time. No one was injured, no one was killed, firearms were not involved...there were no victims. We were Americans pursuing happiness in our own way. Harming no one...nor their property. That’s my contribution to helping point out just how ludicrous our pot laws truly are. I would be honored by your review.

All card-carrying members of the DEA need to read: Shoulda Robbed a Bank Here is one of its reviews: 5.0 out of 5 stars... If David Sedaris had written 'Catcher in the Rye'..this would be it, June 30, 2012 Amazon Verified Purchase This review is from: Shoulda Robbed a Bank (Kindle Edition) I have never smoked pot in my life...nor do I ever care to. I read about this book in numerous Huffington Post comments. Thought I would read it because I know nothing about marijuana or the people involved with it. I am ecstatic that I did. Funny, Funny, Funny!!! The chapters are like short stories. Stories about unloading boats with helicopters, close encounters with law enforcement, traveling through the jungles of South America. The chapter about the author's first time smoking marijuana made me feel like I was with him...coughing. All of the characters were just a group of loveable, nice guys and girls. Not what I had been raised to believe...hysterical maniacs high on pot bent on death and mayhem. They were nothing like that. If you have ever read any of David Sedaris' books, and like them...you will love Shoulda Robbed a Bank. And the crazy things happening reminded me of Holden Caufield in 'Catcher in the Rye' and the way he staggered through life. The way the words are put together are like nothing I have ever heard. I am sure I will use many of the sayings found in this book just to dazzle my friends. A terrific read. I love this book.
