Green Christmas? Elderly couple nabbed driving with 60 lbs of weed intended as 'presents'

Elderly couple Patrick and Barbara Jiron, were stopped by sheriff's deputies in Nebraska, as York News-Times reports. Heading to Boston and Vermont from Northern California in their Toyota Tacoma pickup truck, the elderly couple crossed the center line, deputies say, and failed to signal. When stopped, the deputies smelled fresh marijuana. The driver consented to a search, which yielded 60 pounds of marijuana and some containers of THC concentrate in the back of the pickup. The couple said the weed was meant as "Christmas presents."
