HOLDEN, Maine — A Bangor man was charged after admitting to an officer that he had just eaten what was left of a marijuana cigarette, according to police.

Officer Chris Greeley of the Holden Police Department said that he stopped a car for speeding around 6 p.m. Sunday on Route 1A. Upon approaching the vehicle’s driver, Greeley said he could smell marijuana.

The driver, Michael C. Lipski, 46, of Bangor, reportedly told Greeley that he had just eaten a “roach,” a slang term for the end of a joint.

Greeley said he then asked Lipski to step out of the vehicle so the officer could conduct a search, during which he found a small bag of marijuana.

Lipski was summoned on a charge of possession of a usable amount of marijuana.
