The following is a press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office: On 07-14- 17 Deputies responded to the California Redwood Coast-Humboldt County Airport in Mckinleyville for a report of an airline passenger attempting to board a commercial flight with a large amount of marijuana. Once on scene deputies contacted Michael Mogensen (36 years old) of Arcata. Prior to deputies' arrival TSA had located 12 one pound bags of processed marijuana in Mogensens checked baggage. The marijuana was seized as evidence and Mogenson was issued a citation for transportation and possession of marijuana. Mogenson was then allowed to board the flight. This investigation will be forwarded to the DEA and the FBI for possible prosecution ******************** So for smuggling drugs now you get a ticket, and they let you go without bail (!) but if you just happen to possess an AR-15, you can get a $10,000 fine and three years in jail. You don't have to commit a crime and you don't have to even shoot it.
