Cannabus canna-busted: 'A lot of wasted resources'
EUGENE, Ore. - The Cannabus got canna-busted by Coburg Police on Monday afternoon on I-105 in Eugene near Interestate 5.
Police said the officer stopped the 1988 GMC bus for an unlawful lane change.
The officer reported "smell from vehicle overwhelmingly that of green marijuana," the police department said in a press release. "During a subsequent search of the vehicle, officers found over an ounce of marijuana and hashish."
Police cited passenger Kristin Flor for Unlawful Possession of Less than an Ounce of Marijuana.
The driver,Cash Williams, was cited for Unlawful Lane Change and Opearting a Vehicle without a Valid Operator's License.
Stacy Theis, one of the riders on the bus, said the group of activists are affiliated with "CannaSense" and advocate for medical marijuana in states where the drug is not legal for medicinal purposes.
"I help educate patients," Theis said. "It's frustrating that a plant, a natural plant that does so much good for people wastes so much money. Federal law versus state law is really causing a lot of horrible suffering for people and wasted tax dollars. And as you see, we are pulled over right now: a lot of wasted resources."
Theis said someone on the bus was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia. KVAL News has not been able to independently verify that information.
