QUENSBURY – A Brooklyn man was arrested at a traffic station Friday for possession of more than 200 pounds of marijuana, police said.

State Police arrested Harlon K. Fefferbaum, 39, is in the south lane of North Road at Exit 18 for vehicle and traffic violations. Police said after searching the vehicle, soldiers found several large hockey-style bags containing drugs.

Fefferbaum has been charged with first-degree cannabis possession.

Last year, New York decriminalized marijuana and allowed people to own up to 3 ounces of the drug.

The state is in the process of granting licenses to companies to sell marijuana.
