More Than 12 Lbs. of Weed Seized in I-80 Traffic Stop Near NP

Posted 6 months ago

By Scott Carlson

More than 12 lbs. of marijuana was seized and two people arrested after a weekend traffic stop on Interstate 80 just west of the North Platte interchange.

Just before 9:00 a.m., on Saturday, October 12, a trooper stopped an eastbound 2012 Chevy impala for speeding on I-80, three miles west of the North Platte interchange.  An NSP K-9 indicated the odor of drugs coming from the vehicle. A search of the car led to the seizure of 12.4 lbs. of marijuana. The marijuana was located in a duffle bag in the trunk of the vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle, David J. Evans, 29, Newcastle, Calif., and a passenger in the vehicle Felicia P. MacDowell, 23, Converse, Texas, were both lodged in Lincoln County Detention Center, each on a charge of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.

    It’s not “just pot”. Marijunan today is 10x or more stronger than in the 80s. It causes the same brain reaction that cocaine does. And it makes you LAZY! We already have enough lazy people in our midst.

    It’s been years since I smoked any pot. But that the last time I did, I had hallucinations and electrical bolts running down my arms and shooting out my fingers. It was called blueberry something. Not the pot I used to smoke in highschool.
