SNOW HILL, Md. (AP) — A man who was found with 75 pounds of marijuana in the car he was driving has been sentenced to a year in jail.

Twenty-four-year-old Darnell Kelley of Newport News, Va., was sentenced Thursday. He pleaded guilty to possessing drugs with the intent to distribute them.

In May, Maryland State Police stopped Kelley’s car for speeding.

A police dog alerted to the vehicle, and 75 pounds of marijuana in two gym bags were found in the car.

Kelley’s father, 40-year-old Modis Chandler, also of Newport News, was also in the car and was charged with drug offenses. His trial is set for Jan. 12.

        It’s hard to decide which is worse being an assanine racist or just being racist and not realize it.. Either way, it just shows that there’s room for everybody in America.

    society makes a big deal out of drugs but doesn’t look twice when someone is raped,murdered or kidnapped its hush hush in the news but someone gets caught with drugs and its all over the place….

    I need to make a trip back to S.F. ……. Where my Cannabis Card is still good.

  6. sdfsd says:

    black or white – no one should be in jail for marijuana.

    i’m not racist but I do often wonder why stereotypes are reconfirmed over and over and over again.

    is it racist to say,”I’ve been mugged/robbed three times in my life, every one of those times was by a black person(s)”?
