in Ohio , you can get caught with up to 100 grams , thats about 3 oz's. it's a $100 fine. then the cops take it home and smoke it . lol
Back in my DEA days, we helped the Boston Police do a major marijuana bust & they retained the drug evidence,( which amounted to a large pile of bagged grass, packed to the ceiling) which they kept in a supervisor's office for a few weeks, prior to destroying most of it. The supervisor complained to us that the pile of grass kept getting smaller...every day!
After a few weeks, there was very little left to even have to destroy!
