(Newser) – What happens in California should stay in California—especially if what happened was someone meticulously wrapping $330,000 worth of THC pills, hash wax oil, and marijuana (about 71 pounds) like Christmas presents, UPI reports. Instead, per an Ohio State Highway Patrol press release, 31-year-old Daniel Yates apparently decided to cross state lines with these "gifts" in the trunk of a rented 2016 Ford Expedition, and when he was pulled over Monday morning for driving too closely, a drug-sniffing police dog alerted its human colleagues to Yates' cargo. Yates was charged with the felonies of possession and trafficking in drugs, which could net him up to a $30,000 fine and up to 16 years in prison if he's convicted. (A marijuana Christmas tree was seized in Germany a few years back.)
