2 Va. men charged with pot possession

By Washington Post editors

Delaware State Police say they seized about two pounds of marijuana from two Virginia men during a traffic stop on Interstate 95.

Police say 18-year-old Christopher Harley of Centreville, and 23-year-old Christopher Lancaster of Manassas, were each charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana and other offenses.

Both men were taken to Young Correctional Institution. Harley was being held on $4,501 secured bail, and Lancaster was being held on $4,500 secured bail.

Police Cpl. Jeffrey Hale says Harley was the driver of a car that was stopped for speeding. He says Harley told the trooper that the car had been rented by his girlfriend. While searching for the rental agreement, Hale says the trooper found bags of marijuana in the glove box, rear floorboard and trunk of the car.

As a dad, I’ve asked myself, “If my child or grandchild got a little off track and got caught with a little marijuana, would I want him or her to go to jail, lose their college financial aid, spend a few days locked up with the sexual predators...?” Or would I rather have the chance to help them work through it WITHOUT a criminal record?
