The North Dakota Highway Patrol seized 136 pounds of marijuana from a car on Interstate 94 near Steele at about 1 p.m. on March 1. The car had Idaho license plates, and a trooper's suspicions were cited as the reason why the vehicle was searched. A 22-year-old man and a 33-year-old man were inside of the car at the time of the traffic stop and were taken into custody.
Marijuana, and its prospective legalization, has been a hot topic in the United States for many years. But recent marijuana legalization and decriminalization laws have made the topic an even more important one. Marijuana carries a negative stigma seemingly because it has always carried a negative stigma. In other words, people think it's as bad as it is because people have always said it is bad, not necessarily because it truly is bad.
