The Thomas County Sheriff's Office says after a deputy pulled Utrun Jones over for speeding Sunday afternoon in Thomasville, he acted nervously.

Deputies say a plastic bag of marijuana was sticking out of the car's center console, and two more bags of the drug were found in a backpack on the backseat.

Jones said he had a permit from California that allowed him to process and carry the drug, but officers say he never showed it to them.

Jones is charged with intent to distribute, expired registration, and speeding.

    You know, I've been wondering for quite some time how we went from equality under the law to equality under the law except for those in California. I understand rights of the states but there is a federal law! I agree with the decriminalization of marijuana. However, with the current system in this country, why are Californians able to obtain medical use prescriptions for nearly anything and ALLOWED TO GROW THEIR OWN and SELL IT TO THE GOVERNMENT while those here, even with a personal stash, get thrown away in a cell. The dungeon days are over. It's time for a change, America! And California, do you really believe those people are only selling the marijuana back to YOU? Give me a break! Can we get this over with already? There is NO logical explanation whatsoever as to why alcohol is legal and marijuana is not! Personally, I believe it should be the other way around. Car accidents would decrease, domestic violence would decrease, rapes would decrease, and the list goes on and on...

    Um Hmmmm. A permit to process cannabis? Lotsa luck on that. Face the fact you're a pusher and no way out. Users don't belong in jail, that's useless. Pushers do belong in jail. That's helpful.
