The Half-Pound Bag A Loophole in Drug Trafficking Law
Meet Orlando Rafeal Dager, 24, from Southwest Ranches. He was arrested late Tuesday night with eight bags of marijuana in his 2003 Toyota Camry. This is shocking only because Dager has been a substitute teacher at Cypress Bay High School in Weston (where the kids can afford all sorts of drugs) for four years.
According to what's reported here, when the cops discovered the pot in Dager's car, the sub allegedly said: "That's not pound bags, those are just halves. So that's not trafficking, right?" A stoner moment.
Cypress Bay administration had already gone home for the day, and principal Charles Scott Nealy did not answer his home phone this afternoon.
