Cops: Driver Tries to Conceal Marijuana By Consuming Drug

Union City man faces several charges following motor vehicle stop on Route 15.

A Union City man consumed as much as 50 grams of marijuana in an attempt to conceal the drug during a motor vehicle stop on Route 15, Sparta Police said.

Diego F. Diaz-Rubio was charged with possession of 50 grams or less of marijuana, tampering with evidence, driving with a suspended license and registration, possession of drugs in a motor vehicle, uninsured motor vehicle and three equipment violation summonses.

According to Sgt. John-Paul Beebe, Officer Daniel Elig conducted a motor vehicle stop on March 8 of Diaz when he discovered the registration and driver's license of the owner were suspended.

While speaking with Diaz, the officer detected a strong odor of raw marijuana, Beebe said. Diaz said there wasn't any drugs in the vehicle, Beebe said.

As Diaz was being arrested for driving while suspended, he consumed 50 grams or less of marijuana, Beebe said.

Diaz was charged and released on his own recognizance.

Actually Marijuana is mentioned in the bible by name: 1980, etymologists at Hebrew University in Jerusalem confirmed that cannabis is mentioned in the Bible by name, Kineboisin (Also spelled Kannabosm), in a list of measured ingredients for "an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compounded after the art of apothecary to be smeared on the head. The word was mistranslated in King James version as `calamus' – Exodus 30:23 (Latimer 1988). The above means it was in the oil they used to rub on their skin, it was in the bread they ate called the Lord's Supper, and it was in the incense that was burned in the temples. Marijuana is the Tree-Of-Life talked about in the bible, indeed it was a real tree that grew from the ground: Gen 2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree, the tree of life was also growing in the garden... The above reveals that the Tree-Of-Life is indeed a real tree that grows in the ground. Rev 22:2 In the middle of its street, and on either side of the ocean, was the tree of life. The foliage of the tree are for the healing of the nations. We are living in a day when the Tree-Of-Life (what the world calls marijuana) is healing everything it comes in contact with. The ONLY thing dangerous about marijuana are the cops who shoot people for having it: Number of American deaths per year that result directly or primarily from the following selected causes nationwide, according to World Almanacs, Life Insurance Actuarial (death) Rates, and the last 20 years of U.S. Surgeon Generals' reports. TOBACCO - 340,000 to 450,000 ALCOHOL (Not including 50% of all highway deaths and 65% of all murders) - 150,000+ ASPIRIN (Including deliberate overdose) - 180 to 1,000+ CAFFEINE (From stress, ulcers, and triggering irregular heartbeats, etc.) - 1,000 to 10,000 "LEGAL" DRUG OVERDOSE (Deliberate or accidental) from legal, prescribed or patent medicines and/or mixing with alcohol - e.g. Valium/alcohol - 14,000 to 27,000 ILLICIT DRUG OVERDOSE - (Deliberate or accidental) from all illegal drugs - 3,800 to 5,200 MARIJUANA - 0 (**Marijuana users also have the same or LOWER incidence of murders and highway deaths and accidents than the general NON-marijuana using population as a whole.** Cancer Study, UCLA; U.S. Funded ($6 million), First & Second Jamaican Studies, 1968 to 1974; Costa Rican Studies, 1980 to 1982; et al. LOWEST TOXICITY 100% of the studies done at dozens of American universities and research facilities show pot toxicity does not exist. Medical history does not record anyone dying from an overdose of marijuana (UCLA, Harvard, Temple, etc.) Accordingly a 1993 study done by the U.S. Department of Transportation came to the same conclusion as the above concerning marijuana and driving safety: “Marijuana, administered in a dose of 100 µg THC per kg of whole body weight...did not significantly change mean driving performance as measured...” - U.S Department of Transportation: Marijuana and Actual Driving Performance DOT HS 808 078 The fact is people who use marijuana reflexes are not affected in a negative way and they become more conscious of safety, sometimes refusing to even drive. Marijuana is a plant with a safety record second to none. Anyone who would like to dispute these FACTS, point to a credible death that involves marijuana and nothing but marijuana, or hold your tongue.
