A 22-year-old West Bloomfield Township man who told police he aspires to be a medical marijuana caregiver faces a charge of possession with intent to sell the drug, after a late Saturday traffic stop in Farmington Hills.
According to the Farmington Hills Police report, officers stopped the man's car at Grand River and Purdue because of defective brake and tail lights. The officer who spoke to the man noticed a strong odor of marijuana and spotted a fixed-blade knife inside the vehicle.
The report indicated that officers found two large Mason jars and a large freezer bag filled with marijuana, along with two digital scales inside the vehicle. The man told police he purchased the marijuana from a caregiver in Detroit and hoped to get a medical marijuana card, because of "an old snowboarding injury".
The man also told police he planned to get a caregiver license. The report indicated he has a 2012 conviction for possession of LSD and was arrested in September for possession of dangerous drugs.
