Texas authorities have enhanced the charges against Jacob Lavoro, a 19-year-old, because he drew the oil out of the marijuana leaves, thereby ‘refining’ it. He baked the marijuana in to pot brownies, which he sold for $25 each. So, he committed a crime, but a life penalty doesn’t fit the crime. Keep in mind, he hasn’t been sentenced to life in prison, and its unlikely any prosecutor or judge would do so. But he could be looking at some serious jail time. It may not be a crime in Colorado, but it certainly is in Texas, as it is in Florida.
