Medical marijuana not legal in Missouri
Two Memorial Day travelers were arrested by the Missouri Highway Patrol on suspicion of felony possession of marijuana.
The 49-year-old man and 45-year-old woman, both from Frisco, Colo., were arrested at 1:10 p.m. and released roadside. The Highway Patrol is sending the suspected drugs to the lab for testing and will refer the case to the Saline County Prosecutor after results are received.
According to the Highway Patrol, the suspects possessed medical marijuana certification from Colorado. Missouri does not honor medical marijuana certification from any state.
