Before Scott Shupe made news for getting busted in Oregon with four pounds of marijuana, he was spotlighted for an unusual collection: more than 300,000 marbles.
The 54-year-old Spokane man faces drug charges after he was arrested Friday with a stash he said was meant for medical marijuana patients at the dispensary he co-owns in Spokane, Change.
But Shupe (pictured above in 2005) doesn't have a medical marijuana card in Oregon.
Even if he did, police say the four pounds he was caught with exceeds the pound and a half limit in place in Oregon and Washington. (Read my story here.)
Shupe's legal problems are a sharp change from his last news-making feat. Read a June 2005 story on his marble collection here.
