A retired service member, who entered a military base with drugs and paraphernalia, has been let off the hook with a fine.
Javid Lubofsky appeared in the District Court of Guam on Tuesday to answer to allegations that he possessed marijuana.
While locally marijuana use by adults is legal under the Guam Cannabis Industry Act of 2019, on the federal side marijuana remains illegal.
According to a violation notice, Lubofsky entered a military base in June with marijuana in his vehicle. The officer indicated that upon search of the car, small amounts of marijuana along with a pipe was discovered.
Lubofsky was issued two citations, one related to drug possession and the other an expired driver’s license.
In court, the government moved to dismiss the possession of a controlled substance charge which was granted by District Court Magistrate Judge Michael Bordallo.
A guilty plea was entered by Lubofsky, owning up to driving without a license. He was assessed a fine of a hundred dollars.
