A Mount Pleasant man is accused of ordering marijuana and hashish through the mail from Colorado, where the drugs are sold legally.
Maxwell Blank, 22, of Calais Drive, is charged with possession of marijuana and hashish with intent to distribute and possession of both drugs near a school. He is being held at the Charleston County jail in lieu of $40,000 bail.
Charleston County sheriff’s deputies alerted Mount Pleasant police on Aug. 15 after a suspicious package showed up at a commercial mail shipping center in the area. Inside, deputies found nearly nine ounces of marijuana and about 11 grams of hashish in a tin can, according to an incident report.
Police and sheriff’s narcotics officers did a controlled delivery to the Calais Drive home to which the package was addressed. Blank signed for the package outside the home, the report stated.
Blank later told police he had ordered the drugs from Colorado using a fictitious name, according to the report.
