Those two 18 year olds were found with very minute amounts of marijuana on them.. Thank the heavens they were caught before using those drugs and indulging their munchies at the local QuickChek... damn crooks. And good thing we released the names so their names could be tainted in our community.. Who in their right mind would smoke pot!? Not like it's been proven to be safe in recent years or anything..
