A Summerfield man arrested on a cost of driving below the affect admitted he’d exceeded the restrict on his prescription for medical marijuana edibles.

The deputy suspected Owen was below the affect and invited him to take part in area sobriety workout routines. Owen struggled by means of the workout routines and was arrested on suspicion of driving below the affect.

Nevertheless, the breath samples he supplied registered .000. He supplied a urine pattern.

Owen mentioned he has a medical marijuana license and is prescribed edibles. He mentioned he had not been in a position to get hold of any edibles just lately “as a consequence of reaching his most allowed till August.”

He was booked on the Marion County Jail on a cost of driving below the affect. He was later launched on his personal recognizance.
