A man was told in Sarnia court Wednesday that the butane-modified version of marijuana resin in his possession will not be legalized as part of a government proposal.
A 25-year-old Sarnia man pleaded guilty to possession of a cannabis resin.
On June 25 police stopped a vehicle that smelled of burnt marijuana. The unlicensed driver was arrested.
The 25-year-old was a passenger and admitted ownership of two containers holding a total of approximately one gram of resin. The estimated street value was $70.
The resin was a version called shatter. It has a higher concentration of the active ingredient in marijuana. The yellowish oil is produced by processing marijuana with butane. After the oil hardens it can be shattered.
