A 19 – year – old Texas man could face years in prison for making brownies laced with marijuana and hash oil.
Many pot legalization supporters welcomed Jacob Lavoro as he entered a Williamson County courthouse for the second time since his April arrest. He is accused of selling weed brownies for $25 and is facing felony charges.
Jack Holmes, Lavoro’s attorney, told reporters that lab results show there was only 2.5 grams of marijuana’s psychoactive ingredient, THC, in the brownies.
Authorities also said there was a separate jar that had 145 grams of hash oil. In Colorado edible products are required to be divided into servings of 10 milligrams of THC, which is about the amount in a medium – sized joint.
“I’m scared. Very scared,” Lavoro said. “I’m 19 years old and still have a whole life ahead of me. Take that into account.”
