Recreational marijuana is still illegal in Wisconsin, although police say someone was ringing in the unofficial 4-20 holiday a little early.
Eau Claire police say a person was stopped after driving through a red-light last night. Police say the car smelled strongly of marijuana, but none was recovered during a search. Instead, police say a bag of weed fell from the driver’s pants pocket while standing with officers during the search. The person was cited for possession of T-H-C and a red light violation.
