Man Brings 32 Bags of Weed to Court

You won't find me beating the drum against marijuana, but it's still illegal and should be treated as such by anyone who doesn't want to get arrested.  That means if you have it, you shouldn't take it to places where you might get searched such as a jail, airport or courthouse.  But then there is this guy:

A Jersey City man was charged with multiple drug counts after showing up in family court Friday with 32 bags of suspected marijuana on him, officials said today.

Marquis Diggs, 29, of Ocean Avenue, was arrested in the Hudson County Administration Building in Jersey City at 10:30 a.m. and charged with drug counts including possession with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a school, officials said.

As if having the weed wasn't bad enough, apparently the courthouse is within 1000' of a school, which is an aggravating factor here in Georgia and apparently in NJ too.
