Pot Brownie Recipe Could Land Texas Teen in Prison

A Texas teenager accused of making and selling brownies laced with marijuana and hash oil is facing a punishment that could include anywhere from five years to life in prison.

Nineteen-year-old Jacob Lavoro was arrested in April when Round Rock police searched his apartment and found the 1.5 pounds of brownies. Police say they also found additional marijuana and hash oil, leading to a felony charge.

Authorities say hash oil is a controlled substance with much harsher state penalties than marijuana. The oil has higher concentrations of the psychoactive component of marijuana. It’s in a penalty group with amphetamines and ecstasy.

Williamson County prosecutor Travis McDonald says the sentencing range is five to 99 years or life in prison, but sentences can depend on aggravating factors and other considerations.
