Man accused of sharing medical marijuana with teen

A 29-year-old medical marijuana patient accused of sharing his pot with a 15-year-old girl in Missoula has been charged with a felony.

Benjamin Levi Bartlett appeared in Justice Court on Friday on a charge of criminal distribution of dangerous drugs. Bail was set at $25,000, and Bartlett has been ordered to surrender his medical marijuana card.

Police say an officer riding his bike along a river trail in July saw the girl hide something beneath a rock, and a search turned up a pipe and a baggie of marijuana. Court records say Bartlett told the officer the marijuana and pipe were his, and the girl “took a couple of hits.”

The Missoulian reports he faces up to life in prison and a $50,000 fine if convicted.
