Police seize over "$1 million" worth of marijuana

Chicago police seized marijuana valued at over $1 million after stopping an East Garfield Park man in his car Saturday evening on the Northwest Side, authorities said.

Officers tried to stop James Hargett in the Galewood neighborhood around 7:15 p.m. after seeing him commit a traffic violation after exiting an alley in the 1700 block of North Moody Avenue, according to a statement from the Chicago Police Department's Office of News Affairs.

But Hargett, 37, fled north about a half mile, stopped his car in the 6200 block of West Cortland Street and ran away. Shortly after, officers apprehended Hargett, who they noticed hiding under a porch.

Police later found about 386 pounds of suspect cannabis from inside Hargett's vehicle. The estimated street value of that amount is over $1 million, according to a statement.

Hargett, of the 2900 block of West Adams Street, was charged with one felony count of possessing more than 5,000 grams of cannabis and one misdemeanor count of having an uninsured motor vehicle. He was also cited for failing to stop at a stop sign, disobeying turn signal indicator, and failing to carry or display a driver's license or permit, the statement said.

Hargett is scheduled to be at Cook County bond court Sunday.

From a seperate issue of the same story:

Quote:

Despite national trends, Duncan said he remains strongly opposed to legalization.

"A lot of people think it's no more harmful than alcohol," he said. "I completely disagree with that. I would argue that marijuana is one of the most destructive drugs out there, especially when it comes to adolescent-age children.

"In an adolescent brain that's not fully formed, it does damage to that brain that you don't see in a fully formed adult brain. I've seen case after case after case where young people are using that as a crutch to deal with normal adolescent stress. They become extremely dependent on it."
