New York police find marijuana in traffic stop

Excessive speed recently led to marijuana charges for four women from New York City. They were going 92 mph while traveling on Interstate 87 on the morning of May 2. Troopers stopped the vehicle and found three of the women in possession of drugs.

The driver, a 32-year-old woman, received a speeding ticket and was caught driving without a valid license. She faces charges of unlicensed vehicle operation in the third degree.

One passenger, a 24-year-old woman from Queens, was found with marijuana inside her boot. Police also found medications that were not prescribed to her. She faces possession charges for both drugs.

Police found opiates on one of the passengers, a 40-year-old woman. She faces charges of possession of a controlled substance.

A third passenger, a 31-year-old woman from the Bronx, was allegedly found unconscious by troopers, so an ambulance was called. The woman attacked the trooper, scratching, grabbing and striking him. She was eventually restrained, while the trooper was treated for minor injuries at a local hospital. The woman was taken to a local hospital, where she was found with synthetic marijuana under her clothes. She faces charges for obstruction of justice and drug possession. All four women were taken to Essex County Jail in lieu of bail or bond.

Although the women were found with illegal drugs, the amounts were so insignificant that jail time would not make any sense. Some of the charges include seventh-degree possession, which is a misdemeanor. There was no evidence that the women were planning on distributing the drug. For these drug-related offenses, the women should be allowed to pay the bail and have the charges dismissed, especially if these were their first offenses.
