Hume and Colby didn’t submit to the driver’s license checkpoint but were told to “get the f**k out of the car.” The driver’s license checkpoint was held by the deputies in the early morning hours, of May 1, around 1:15 am Tuesday when Jordanna Marie Colby,31 ,and Jason Howard Humes, 29, approached them while driving a Dodge truck.
Sheriff’s deputies say they arrested the couple from after finding them with some 500 marijuana seeds.
The truck was stopped at the intersection of Lytle Mountain Road and Nix Creek Road after deputies say they could smell a strong odor of marijuana.
50 packets of marijuana – totaling 500 seeds – were found with them that led to the their arrests. Deputies say they also found cash and drug paraphernalia in the truck.
Colby and Humes are charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia by the McDowell County Sheriff’s Office.
Hume tells the Free Thought Project that he ordered the marijuana seeds legally off the internet and was told not to allow the seeds to germinate, which he didn’t. He was simply keeping the seeds as a souvenir until he could relocate to a state where he could legally grow cannabis.
In North Carolina, marijuana arrests alone, total in the tens of thousands each year. The result of such a tyrannical practice is morally innocent people like Colby and Hume, losing their freedom over pieces of a plant.
While the rest of the country, 29 states at last count, has passed legislation legalizing marijuana in some form or another, North Carolina continues to celebrate its marijuana arrests.
Aside from kidnapping and caging people for possessing a plant, North Carolina also conducts unconstitutional driver’s license checkpoints. It was at one of these tyrannical stops where the couple was nabbed.
