A reminder to all card-carrying marijuana users when visiting a non-legalized state—marijuana is not legal everywhere. Two Colorado men learned this lesson the hard way when staying in a Wyoming hotel recently.
Eric Jarrin and Christopher Rathe were placed under arrest following an avoidable set of circumstances, according to Oil City News. It started when Jarrin complained to the a Casper motel front desk that his marijuana had been stolen from his room. Police arrived on the scene, “Jarrin identified himself with a driver’s license and a marijuana card, both out of Colorado,” as Oil City News reports.
Jarrin told police that cannabis flower had been stolen from him, then also admitting he had “dabs” on his possession. Dabbing oils are a highly concentrated viscous liquid of THC and cannabinoids.
Following an investigation, officers found approximately one gram in dabs, glass pipes, 2.86 grams of suspected raw marijuana, and other paraphernalia, including items covered in dabs residue.
Both men were reportedly part of crew doing grocery inventory in Casper, according to a police affidavit. They were placed under arrest and transported to the local county detention center without any incident.
