February is turning out to be one big pot bust month for Illinois.
Terez Browning, 33, was busted by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, so he was likely trying to mail his product.
Where did he put the postage stamp?
Browning pleaded guilty in a federal courtroom to possession with intent to distribute. He faces up to 20 years in prison and as much as $2 million in fines.
For those of you keeping score, Illinois police confiscated nearly 3,500 pounds of pot near O'Hare, 4,400 pounds of marijuana south of Champaign, and 102 pounds in downstate Peru, all in the month of February. Not to mention the alleged marijuana-growing operation by a high school dean in Zion.
This East St Louis bust takes another 220 pounds off the market.
We wonder if brownie lovers are feeling the pinch yet.
