Massive Pot Bust Saves San Angelo Streets from Reefer Madness


SAN ANGELO, TX – A drug trafficker, attempting to flood the San Angelo streets with the Devil's Lettuce, was stopped by a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper last week just before he could make it town.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, last week, a DPS Trooper conducted a traffic stop on a gray passenger car for speeding on US 87.

During the initial conversation, the driver admitted to possessing a small amount of marijuana.

A search of the vehicle revealed the small bag of marijuana and two tetrahydrocannabinol vape pens. Then the trooper checked the trunk and found approximately 19 pounds of marijuana and two firearms without serial numbers. 

The driver was arrested and booked into the Tom Green County Jail for possession of marijuana >5 lbs.<=50 lbs., possession of controlled substance, Penalty group 2 >1g and unlawful carry. 

In the press release, DPS did not reveal the name of the suspect. A booking report from Nov. 17 indicates that a Dominque House, of Midland, was arrested for the above charges and was released on a $26,000 bond the following day.

This is ridiculous. Make it legal and tax it. For a state that says it prides itself on "freedom" it tries really hard to prevent people from doing what they want. Legalization has worked for every other state that has done it and they see millions of dollars in tax revenue from it, as opposed to the cost of locking people up unnecessarily.

Just proves that republicans caring about "freedom" is just something they say to justify their own bad decisions and actions (like the attempted takeover of the government and not wearing a mask during a pandemic.)

Amen & well put!!

And is it just me or does everyone else just cringe when they see some writer trying to be " cutting edge" that's" trying" by using ridiculously lame terms such as " Devils Lettuce" 

" Refeer Madness"& the lamest " Jazz Cabbage" ugggggh .Dude , it's Marijuana ,call it what it is and try not to try so hard to be so lame ... Can i get a uggggggh!!!


What is wrong with people in this town? Do they think that we are still living in the 1800's? The writer is an unimaginative Plagiarist. Furthermore, this san angelo live website is the spammiest that I have ever encountered. Two thumbs down~
