Marijuana Brownies at Underage Drinking Party Lead to Charges, Police Say

Waukesha County Sheriff's Department responded to a complaint of loud noise at a Town of Lisbon home and found an underage drinking party, according to a criminal complaint.

Brownies are among traditional party treats and – without a secret ingredient –  only cause concern for a person’s waistline.

But for deputies responding to a report of loud noise on Bark Road in the Town of Lisbon, it was that ingredient that caused them concern.

Robert J. Meyer, 19, of Eagan, MN, is facing several drug charges after the deputies reported finding marijuana brownies at the home on Nov. 16, according to a criminal complaint.

Meyer is charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. If convicted, he faces up to seven months in jail and $1,500 in fines.

According to the complaint:

The deputies responded to the W24700 block of Bark Road in the Town of Lisbon at 11:36 p.m. Nov. 16 where they found a large underage drinking party in progress. The deputies asked a detective to respond when they found evidence of a possible indoor marijuana grow.

The Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department located 0.5 grams of marijuana, marijuana brownies and paraphernalia consistent with smoking and growing marijuana.

The detective made contact with Meyer, who lived at the Town of Lisbon residence at the time. He told the detective he was hosting the party and the marijuana was his. Meyer admitted to making the brownies to give to those attending the party.

Meyer also admitted he was going to start growing marijuana indoors, having a chamber, grow lights, potting soil and nutrients. He told the detective he planned to grow a single plant for his own use.

While the complaint states Meyer lived at the Town of Lisbon home at the time of the party, his address is now in Eagan, a suburb of the Twin Cities.

So never mind the underage drinking part which by the way can lead to violent behavior and rape, specially among teens and college students, no let's pay more attention and even arrest them for the marijuana brownies; because we all know how much more deadly and instigating a brownie is than a bottle of goose!

Prohibition has finally run its course: Our prisons are full, our economy is in ruins, the lives and livelihoods of tens of millions of Americans have been destroyed or severely disrupted. What was once a shining beacon of liberty and prosperity has become a toxic, repressive, smoldering heap of hypocrisy and a gross affront to fundamental human decency. If you sincerely believe that prohibition is a dangerous and counter-productive policy then you can stop helping to enforce it. You are entitled—required even—to act according to your conscience. * It only takes one juror to prevent a guilty verdict. * You are not lawfully required to disclose your voting intention before taking your seat on a jury. * You are also not required to give a reason to the other jurors on your position when voting. Simply state that you find the accused not guilty. * Jurors must understand that it is their opinion, their vote. If the Judge and the other jurors disapprove, too bad. There is no punishment for having a dissenting opinion. We must create what we can no longer afford to wait for and end the most destructive, dysfunctional, dishonest and racist social policy since Slavery. If you wish to replace prohibition with a far more sensible system of legalized regulation, PLEASE VOTE TO ACQUIT!

Sir, with all due respect: How can you justify "lock[ing] 'em up" when the 'offense' is marijuana? I mean, I could understand if these people were also selling hard drugs or something--but it is ludicrous to criminalize marijuana when alcohol is legal. perhaps this young man has an anxiety issue or suffers from migraines? he said that he was growing for personal use--not trying to become a drug kingpin. i do not condone mindless recreational use of drugs--i simply wish to point out that marijuana needs to be decriminalized. we are wasting tax dollars and police time. there are ACTUAL dangerous people out there who need to be locked up. somehow, my gut sense says that this poor kid isn't one of them.
