Josephine County sheriff reminds passengers words that we are your enemy.

If he was the passenger he can claim he had no idea what was in the car. If he was carrying a bag of it on his lap he'll need to be cleverer, maybe by saying he thought the driver had packed them a lunch for later.

Side Show Bob:  Ah for the good old days when you could say you were a hitch hiker and knew the driver not.  The cops would be no less lenient: they'd, of course, try and beat the information from your breast.  But if you weren't a squealer, you could do 30 days in the local and they'd walk you to the county line and give you a fare-thee-well tap across the kidneys.  The bloody urine would remind you not to return to their jurisdiction.

Don't y'all have legal weed? I'm confused on why this is evening happening.

Look up constructive possession. If it's in an area where he could physically control it, he can be charged with it. Given that he was in a vehicle with 116 pounds of Weed, there's literally no way in hell he didn't know it was in there and wasn't part of whatever trafficking operation they were running.

The DA has been informed of the seventy-five pounds of weed and is filing the appropriate charges.

Public limits on marijuana possession in Oregon are something like an ounce for bud, up to a few pounds for products that contain it but mostly aren't THC like edibles or liquids.  Your own property it's like 8 ounces of bud and 6 plants?  I think?  Maybe less.  Point is you can't be moving shiatloads like that legally unless you're in the business - not even in Oregon

Is it the end times? Why in the fark do you need 115lbs of pot (or hell, more than an ounce)?

Like, I know y'all claim to be the direct descendants of Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg, but even they are smoking 115lbs of ganja between when the shops close in the evening and when they open the next day.

Not to mention that Josephine County and that area in particular are long, LONG renowned for weed and weed-growing.  116 pounds in a private car is bound to create a 'misunderstanding' if you get pulled over.  Not even sure if there's an outlet to buy it in CJ, let alone one that might sell that much to a customer in one day (there are limits as to how much you can buy in one day, IIRC, and it's trackable on computers and that.)

Constructive possession is when the demon that takes over your body is better at your job than you are.

That's what I was thinking.   What I remember of Lovecraft stories was that the people who had lived in the boonies of New England for a very long time*** had devolved or something.   I always think of that when I have to drive through that country.   Wingnuts love that area.

Yes, there's no way that he didn't know he was in the car with a shiatload of weed. I don't care how good your packaging is, you'd still smell it. Also, 116 pounds of weed takes up a LOT of space. You might be able to fit it in a trunk. More likely, it would be piled in the trunk and the back seat.

This is 130 pounds...

Possession of over an ounce on your person, half a pound per adult in the home, and over certain amounts of concentrates and edibles (don't know the quantities) is a no-no.

There is still a lot of weed sales because taxes make the dispensary prices too high. From Nor-Cal and Oregon it gets exported to states where is it still illegal.

Probably thought about running, then decided his melatonin level was far darker than that of the driver and didn't want to risk a cop claiming "He was coming right at me!" as the body cam malfunctioned.

In Canada the constructive possession aspect used to be "knowledge OR control" of a controlled substance.

A few years ago, a court case set precedence to "knowledge AND control".

You have to know what was there, and you have to exercise a degree of control over what was there.

This was specifically in response to people being unwittingly used to smuggle drugs. Wilful blindness is not a defense, though.

Otherwise, let's say someone on a plane had a kilo of cocaine. Would you charge all the passengers who shared an overhead bin with the smuggler? You could easily argue they had control of the substance, with your reasoning.

The amount limits were a sop for the "Won't someone think of the children!?!?" Karens, and nothing but - but without them it's quite likely they would have had a problem passing some of the legislation

That... really godawful reasoning Disc.  A kilo of coke is the size of a really large book.  You'd have no idea if it was in luggage or anything else if they made even the slightest effort to hide it.  Here is an image of 100 lbs. of weed.  You gonna miss this in a car?
