Humboldt County Man Sunbathing in San Diego Popped for Pot
This is a press release from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.
A Fallbrook Patrol Deputy contacted a male and female sitting in a vehicle that was parked awkwardly in the 2700 block of Pala Road in Bonsall. The subjects advised the deputy that they were “sunning themselves because it improves their serotonin.”
The deputy immediately identified the odor of bulk marijuana coming from inside the vehicle. Within the vehicle, he found large quantities of marijuana and concentrated cannabis. The male subject, Adam Mathison (age 24) of Humboldt County, admitted to the substances being his and that he brought them from Humboldt County to use at a “gathering” taking place on the Pauma Indian Reservation.
He was arrested for numerous charges including 11360 HS-Transportation of Marijuana for Sale and 11359 HS-Possession of Marijuana for Sale. All total, 13 ounces (0.81 pounds) of concentrated cannabis, 8.87 pounds of processed marijuana, and 20 grams of additional marijuana which had been rolled into joints, were found in the vehicle. The concentrated cannabis has an estimated street value of $15,000. The processed marijuana has a street value of about $18,000. Mathison was booked into the Vista Detention Facility on the above noted charges.
