Law enforcement officials have made it clear that they will be keeping an eye out for Ohioans bringing marijuana purchased in Michigan back into the state.
Law enforcement agencies won’t necessarily be monitoring the Ohio/Michigan borders, but citizens may see more police presence, Cleveland.com reported.
Robert Cornwell of the Buckeye State Sheriff’s Association said, “We’re not going to profile people. We’re going to just do our job. And as we stop people for probable cause, we’ll look to search and go from there.”
Lt. Robert Sellers, spokesperson for the Ohio State Highway Patrol said, “We do continue to monitor what is occurring in other states to ensure our troopers have the information they need to make sound enforcement decisions.”
Keep in mind that brining marijuana purchased legally in Michigan back to Ohio could result in federal drug charges for transporting a federally illegal substance across state lines.
