Irritated over "Shatter Madness" well, you have people like Michael A. Bost of Cave Junction, Oregon to thank.

Bost was recently pulled over on the Ohio Turnpike for following too closely to a fellow motorist. Drug sniffing dogs were brought to the scene and directed law enforcement officials to a hidden compartment in the back of his pickup truck.  

During the find, the troopers discovered four large packages of marijuana flower, 17 plastic bins filled with marijuana extracts, a bag suspected of having methamphetamine residue, in addition to other drug paraphernalia. The expected street value of all the seized product is estimated at around $100,000.  

Bost has been charged with trafficking marijuana and drug possession.  

In accordance with Ohio state law, possession of up to 20,000 grams of marijuana is a felony offense of up to 5 years in prison with a $10,000 fine. Possession of 1,000 grams of concentrates demands a sentence of 8 years and/or $15,000 fine.

The trafficking charge could lead to a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 - 8 years and a possible fine of $15,000 if the weight of his seized product is between 20,000 - 40,000 grams. No other details of the arrest have been made available.
