Idaho police seize marijuana, arrest Oregon man

MOUNTAIN HOME, Idaho (AP) - An Oregon man is facing a felony drug trafficking charge in southwest Idaho after police say they found 22.5 pounds of marijuana worth about $100,000 in his vehicle.

The Elmore County Sheriff's Office says 53-year-old James Lewis Kelly of Oregon City became nervous during a traffic stop on Thursday.

Kelly refused a request by police to search his vehicle, but a drug-sniffing dog outside the vehicle alerted to the presence of drugs.

Police say a subsequent search found the marijuana in the vehicle.

Kelly on Saturday was being held in the Elmore County Jail with a bail of $100,000.


In Colorado, the sales tax on $100,000 of cannabis amounts to $29,000.

I wonder how much the arrest, trial, and incarceration of this Oregon man is going to cost the Idaho tax-payer.  Hmmm.

Legalize it!  Regulate it!  Tax it!
