Alabama: Colorado Marijuana Mogul Caught With Pot; No Smoking For 2 Years

A Colorado man who's behind one of the largest medical marijuana products companies in the state won't be allowed to use cannabis for two years after he pleaded guilty to pot possession in Alabama.

Vincent "Tripp" Keber, managing director of the company which makes the Dixie Elixirs line of cannabis-infused products, pleaded guilty last month to misdemeanor marijuana possession in Baldwin County, Alabama, reports John Ingold at The Denver Post. A second charge of marijuana possession was dropped as part of the plea deal, and the whole case will be expunged if Keber stays out of trouble for the next two years, according to his lawyer, Harold Callaway.

Keber will be required to check in with law enforcement in Alabama daily and submit to random drug tests. If those tests show he has used alcohol, marijuana, or any other drugs, he could face up to a year in jail, according to Martha Simmons with the Baldwin County district attorney's office.

"This is a situation during some vacation where I basically made an error in judgment," Keber said.
