JERSEY CITY, NJ – On Friday, January 31, 2020 the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office under the direction of Sheriff Frank X.

The tractor trailer was loaded with 737 lbs. of marijuana with an estimated street value of $1.5 million.

“This is one of the biggest single marijuana busts in Hudson County history,” said Hudson County Sheriff Frank X. Schillari. “Our detective bureau deserves all the credit for an excellent job, I’m proud to have them in my department serving and protecting the people of Hudson County.”

31 year old Usman Ahmed of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada and 21 year old Manjot Aujal of Poughkeepsie, NY were arrested and charged with first degree possession of marijuana and first degree manufacturing and distribution of a controlled dangerous substance.

    1. I thought it was legal in the state of New Jersey and the rest of the 47 states except for Hawaii and Puerto Rico. Someone should be listening but I believe Governor Murphy has been going on to vote in November to finally get it legalized not only for recreational but for in general these guys clearly weren’t from Columbia they were from Canada and name says they’re Indian, Nationality. Other than heroin or needles are pounds and pounds of kilos of coke or heroin yeah it’s literally grass dried up that’s packaged the sell in dispensaries around the country. In fact New Jersey has several closest one being Paterson NJ
