An Arkansas man who was transporting more than 5 pounds of marijuana into the Hot Springs area was stopped and arrested after investigators received a tip, police said.

Hunter Edward Mize, 21, of Conway, faces charges of simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, the Hot Springs Sentinel-Record reported Thursday.

Acting on the tip, authorities on Tuesday stopped a BMW that Mize was driving on Ault Loop, which runs off Arkansas 128 east of Fountain Lake.

Police said Mize admitted transporting marijuana. Several containers holding a combined 5.6 pounds of the drug were found in the vehicle along with a gun and a smoking device, according to a probable cause affidavit cited by the newspaper.

Authorities said Mize told them at the jail that he had been transporting 15 to 20 pounds of marijuana into Hot Springs from Conway each month for roughly six months.

Mize remained in the Garland County jail Thursday with bail set at $35,000.

Another monumental waste of tax payer money and law enforcement resources. Is this really all they have to do?

While the laws are changing, it is still illegal. This kind of behavior will only delay our progress to get our pot laws changed as they should be. It is sad this man will probably do time but the law is quite clear for this amount of the drug. Given time, our laws concerning pot will change. Seems dumb too me that drunk is OK but high on pot is just awful. Would you rather have a drunk on the road or a pot head? Well the answer is neither however if I have to choose?????
