At Greyhound rest stop, Lamar cops find "abnormally heavy" pillow filled with marijuana

Recreational marijuana is now legal in Colorado, but carrying eleven pounds of pot on a Greyhound bus with the "intent to manufacture or distribute" is not. That is the felony charge that landed 35-year-old Jason Ramirez in jail, after a routine check at a rest stop in Lamar uncovered an "abnormally heavy" pillow. Ramirez, who'd stopped inside a McDonald's, at first told police he was not a passenger. A bus ticket in his name said otherwise.
