Cleveland Police in Ohio of U.S. arrested Friday evening a 39-year-old man who was working to get support for the legalization of medical marijuana.
Police arrested Jerome Johnson on charges of under the influence of intoxicants (DUI) after they found marijuana in his car.
According to Cleveland cops, someone called the officers after seeing Johnson's car driving in ditches just west of Cleveland. After reaching the spot a short time later, officers found Johnson in his car at a four-way stop sign continuously flashing his headlights on and off.
During inspection in the car, police say they found different illegal items which included one pound of marijuana, marijuana wax, marijuana oil, hashish, three loaded hand guns, several hundred rounds of ammunition and drug paraphernalia.
They informed Johnson, refusing to go through an intersection, was driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
Before his arrest from his car, as police say, Johnson had been at the Cleveland's carnival night where he met several people seeking their support for the legalization of medical marijuana.
Police booked Johnson on several complaints including driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUI), possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and transporting a loaded firearm post his arrest.
The 39-year-old man was lodged in Pawnee County jail. However, he is now out of jail on bond.
