Two Antwerp men cited for possession of controlled substance following traffic stop
Updated Sept. 16 to correct the charges related to marijuana possession. The story originally incorrectly reported the subjects were in possession of more than a pound of pot because state police mistakenly stated they were charged with second degree unlawful possession of marijuana. Under state law, the second degree possession charge is applied only to those found to be in possession of more than a pound. North Country Now regrets the error.
