Boston Police report arresting a Revere man they say loaded up his pickup with cannibis products - including pot-laced Rice Krispy treats and chocolate-chip cookies - then drove down O'Callaghan Way selling them, at least until officers arrived and arrested him around 5:30 p.m. yesterday, because even in this enlightened state, you can't do that sort of thing.
In total, police say, Daniel Lincoln, 38, came down to Southie with four pounds of marijuana, 223 vials of liquid TCH, 216 pre-rolled THC cigars, 34 tins worth of THC-infused chocolate bars, 162 vials with four THC-enhanced Gummy bears each, "numerous" chocolate-chip cookies and Rice Crispy tweets with an extra ingredient; smoking paraphernalia for folks who'd left theirs at home and $2,640 in cash.
For customers looking for something a bit different than the pot and THC items, Lincoln also had a variety of vials of prescription drugs, including Adderall, Alprozolam, and Diazapam, priced to move, police say.
Police charged Lincoln with possession of Class, B, C and D drugs with intent to distribute.
In a statement, Police Commissioner William Evans said:
Even with changes to the laws, we are still seeing these drugs being sold illegally on the streets. THC and marijuana pose a risk to buyers who don’t know exactly what they’re getting, and firearms and weapons are often involved. Due to the public safety risks that come with the illicit sale of THC and marijuana, my officers will continue to work to take these drugs off the streets in efforts to keep Boston safe.”
Although voters in 2016 approved legalization of recreational marijuana and its sale, state regulators have yet to finalize sales regulations and there are no legal pot shops in the state - much less pot trucks.
