Teen Who Potentially Faced Life For Pot Brownies Agrees To Plea Deal

• Daily Paul.com

Lavoro was arrested in May of this year when his neighbor reporte4d a "strange smell" emanating from his apartment. Rather than knocking on his door and asking what the smell was, the neighbor called the police. The police arrived, searched his house (probably illegally) and found that Lavoro had been making pot brownies.

Because Lavoro used hash oil to make the brownies, instead of marijuana, the state used the entire weight of the brownies – about 1.5 lbs. worth – to determine the amount of drugs possessed. Sugar, flour, and brownie mix all counted as drugs in the eyes of the law. This made the charge against him a first degree felony and if convicted he was set to serve five years to life.

Fast forward to this week and Lavoro decided he was not ready to take the chance on spending his life in prison. He agreed to a plea deal this week and The Statesman reported the details.
