He is scheduled to be sentenced in May.

Police across the country arrest more people for cannabis than for any other single drug, and marijuana remains illegal at the federal level even as some states offer fully legal markets for recreational cannabis. In 2018, 663,000 people were arrested for some form of marijuana-related offenses, a substantial portion of the total 1,650,000 drug arrests nationwide.
