LORAIN -- An Illinois man is facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized 31 pounds of BC Bud marijuana, valued at more than $124,000, during a traffic stop yesterday on the Ohio Turnpike in Amherst Township in Lorain County.
Troopers stopped a 2009 Toyota Prius with New York registration for speed and marked lanes violations westbound on the Ohio Turnpike near milepost 149 at approximately 4:23 p.m. Monday.
Troopers observed the driver and an OSP drug-sniffing canine alerted to the vehicle.
A probable cause search revealed 31 pounds of BC Bud marijuana in the trunk.
The driver, Jose Duran, 32, of Aurora, Ill., was charged with possession of drugs, a third-degree felony. Duran was taken to the Lorain County Jail.
If convicted, he could face up to 5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
"BC Bud marijuana" is one of the most potent strains of cannabis, which is usually cultivated in British Columbia.

Through August 2009, the Patrol seized more than 3 million grams of illegal narcotics valued at approximately $19.3 million.
In 2008, the Patrol seized more than 5.2 million grams of illegal narcotics valued at approximately $47.5 million

Good job... the sad thing is 31lbs wouldn't even make the news here'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

31 lbs is definitely newsworthy here.
By time it gets up to us it seems as if the cargo is cut down to enough for street level dealers.No one has greater love than this, to lay down ones life for ones friends - John 15:13
