SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California jury has convicted a man of being in possession of money from a pot deal after police discovered the marijuana-scented cash, but no drugs, in his car's trunk.
The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/1bhHkUY ) that a jury on Friday convicted William David Bush in Sonoma County Superior Court.
Police testimony during the trial indicated the smell of pot from the cash inside Bush's black Mercedes-Benz was extremely strong.
Officers say pot-scented money is a common occurrence in big marijuana deals.
Bush, who represented himself, testified that the money had come from his ATM business, and that his mother had given it to him.
He faces a maximum sentence of four years in jail.
