Bushrod, 20, from Ashburn was charged with possession of marijuana and alcohol by a minor. He was also served a warrant for simple assault from a previous domestic related incident that happened May 10. Bushrod was released on a personal recognizance bond.


This dangerous drug needs to be banned and taken off of our streets.  It’s just a matter of time until children get their hands on this vile brew.  Parents drinking in front of their children contributes to the rising delinquency rates and falling intelligence.
