Yes, a man was arrested driving with 6 1/2 pounds of marijuana in mason jars and baggies in his car. In case you don;t know Washington State law, you can only have one ounce on your person unless you have a medical license. With a medical license until July, you can have up to 1 1/2 pounds, but still far below the amount found in this guys car.
