A California man is facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized 186 pounds of marijuana and prescription drugs, worth more than $425,000 following a traffic stop on the Ohio Turnpike near Milan.

Troopers stopped a 2007 Chevrolet Express cargo van, with Illinois registration, for a following too closely violation on the Ohio Turnpike, eastbound, near milepost 121, in Erie County at 12:06 p.m. Wednesday.

Troopers observed criminal indicators and a Patrol drug-sniffing canine alerted to the vehicle. A probable cause search of the vehicle revealed 123 vacuum-sealed packages of marijuana, weighing about 186 pounds. Troopers also discovered 24 oxycodone hydrochloride tablets and drug paraphernalia.

The driver, Christopher Roy Glisson, 33, of Santa Rosa, Calif., was incarcerated in the Erie County Jail and charged with possession of marijuana and trafficking in marijuana, both second-degree felonies.

If convicted, he could face up to 16 years in prison and up to a $30,000 fine.

I love how EVERY one of these stories has "for a following too closely violation on the Ohio Turnpike" and "Troopers observed criminal indicators" in them. How many people follow THAT close to get the attention of cops?

Washington and Colorado became the first states to legalize recreational use and sale of marijuana for adults.
