THREE CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS ARRESTED FOR MARIJUANA SMUGGLING IN BOSTON AIRPORT
- December 18, 2018
Over the past couple of years, Massachusetts has made a name for itself in the continuously developing marijuana industry, mostly thanks to the acceptance of the little green plant along the East Coast. However, in spire of the Bay State’s recent success and the popularity of the herb overall, problems are still bound to arise due to criminal activity. Recently, three residents from California were recently arrested for attempting to smuggle marijuana into Logan International Airport, and the incident has already made headlines in the pot community. Of course, we must keep in mind that, despite written proof that this plant is not as dangerous as other mind-altering substances, marijuana is still a drug and will still remain a part of drug-related criminal activity. Let’s take a closer look at the recent incident at the Boston Airport and see what this could mean for the State of Massachusetts.
Good Track Record, So Far
Up until now, Massachusetts has maintained a relatively clean record when it comes to the marijuana industry and the state market. Being one of the first states along the East Coast to accept the little green plant, Massachusetts has always maintained an inclusive, acceptable air (not unlike the focal points of the pot industry in California and Oregon). Likewise, we must recall that the Bay State also boasts one of the lowest rates of unemployment in our country. So, what could possibly go wrong?
Busted for Smuggling Pot
According to the official report from the Boston State Police, three Californians attempted to smuggle suitcases full of an estimated 150 pounds of marijuana through Logan International Airport. As indicated, law enforcement officials in Sacramento County had tipped off the Boston police to inform them about the travelers. However, when the two Californians arrived at the airport, authorities also noticed a third passenger carrying similar luggage.
Following a subsequent arrest, the three people were charged with conspiracy for trafficking cannabis and a range of other offenses. No other details were provided by the Boston police.
