Texas man facing five to life, because he made pot brownies

We're learning more about the man facing five years to life in prison for allegedly making and selling pot brownies. Police in Round Rock arrested Jacob Lavoro last month. He's charged with a first degree felony. Think that's harsh? Lavoro's lawyer and family would agree with you.

"It's outrageous, it's crazy! I don't understand it" exclaimed Joe Lavoro. He's Jacob's father. He made the comment outside the courtroom after one of what could be many court appearances for Jacob. "Five years to life?" he continued. "I'm sorry, I'm a law abiding citizen. I'm a conservative. I love my country. I'm a Vietnam veteran, but I'll be damned ... this is wrong, this is damn wrong!"
