Marijuana returned to Oklahoma dispensary after traffic stop

The Associated Press and The Oklahoman - July 27, 2019 8:16 am

(Information from: The Oklahoman, http://www.newsok.com)
GUTHRIE, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma prosecutors have dropped all charges against two people arrested for marijuana possession during a June traffic stop who contended that 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 on June 4th after Logan County sheriff deputies found 21 pounds (9.5 kilograms) of marijuana and charged the pair 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 that they were delivering marijuana from an Enid dispensary to another in Edmond. Their attorney noted that the marijuana, appraised at $55,000, would be returned to the Enid business.
