Man Leaves Pot Court Appearance In SUV Full Of Weed (Busted)

Yves Duboc, who tried leaving a courthouse with 70 pounds of weed after appearing for pot offenses, wins for persistence

Massachusetts State Police

Yves Duboc tried leaving a Massachusetts courthouse Wednesday with 70 pounds of marijuana after appearing in court for Cannabis offenses. For his tenaciousness, Duboc wins Leaf Nation’s Stoner Persistence Award of the Day.

Duboc, 43, of Biddeford, Maine, appeared in Newburyport District Court for driving without a license and illegal marijuana possession on June 29, Massachusetts State Police said, reports the Essex Daily Voice.

Authorities released Yves under the condition that he didn’t drive until he got his Maine driver’s license. That license was already suspended, reports NBC Boston.

70 Pounds Marijuana; 20 Pounds Extract

As he left the courthouse, a Massachusetts State Police trooper watched him get into a Toyota SUV with a Florida license plate and drive off. The trooper promptly Duboc pulled over and arrested him for driving without a license, according to state police.

After handcuffing Duboc and putting him in the back of the police cruiser, the trooper searched the SUV. While searching, the trooper found a total of 70 pounds of marijuana and 20 pounds of marijuana extract.

That’s not to mention “other drug paraphernalia,” which means ziplock baggies, a bong, and a large roll of $20 bills rolled up in a rubber band. These discoveries led to a new charge of trafficking in marijuana, reports CBS News.

Duboc Has Two Court Appearances On Same Day

Troopers booked Duboc before driving him back to Newburyport District Court. They charged him with unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and trafficking in marijuana.

“He was one court appearance short of a hat trick,” state police said in a press release they must have considered clever. “But two in the same court on the same day is still pretty unique.”

Adults can carry up to one ounce of marijuana under Massachusetts law and have up to 10 ounces locked up at home. Possession of more than an ounce of weed carries a fine $500 or imprisonment for up to six months.
