Honestly, I can’t believe we’re still arresting people over small amounts of weed. It’s one thing if you have a bunch of drugs on you.
While I’m not a weed expert, allegedly having a grinder containing weed would seem to indicate Caruso didn’t have much on him at all.

Hopefully, Caruso gets nothing more than a slap on the wrist and can move forward without any issues. Doing crystal meth is a bad idea. Allegedly having a grinder with some weed in it isn’t something anyone should really sweat.
