(Georgetown, TX) -- First-degree felony charges are being dropped against a Texas teen facing a possible life sentence for having pot brownies. Williamson County prosecutors decided Tuesday to not pursue intent to sell charges against Jacob Lavoro so they could have a simpler case. He was arrested and charged in April for having over a pound of pot-laced brownies. Authorities originally pursued the more serious charges because of how much the brownies weighed, although the 19-year-old's attorney says only a couple grams of marijuana were actually in the brownies.
