Desserts are delicious, but when they're laced with marijuana they're illegal. Well, at least in Ohio.

State troopers stopped a Chevy Impala for a left-of-center-traffic violation on Munn Road in Geauga County's Newbury Township on May 26. Troopers smelled a marijuana odor coming from the car. During a search they say they recovered 67 morphine pills, 1,300 grams of various marijuana edibles and raw marijuana, all worth an estimated $8,510. The edibles included cookies, Rice Krispie treats and candy.

The driver, Jaren Bouyer, 34, of Twinsburg, was charged with possession of a schedule II substance, a third-degree felony. He was also charged with possession and trafficking in drugs, both fourth-degree felonies.

Bouyer was arrested and incarcerated in Geauga County Jail.
