Motorist accused of crashing into marijuana dispensary while high on marijuana

An 18-year-old man was arrested early on Sunday on suspicion of driving while high on marijuana after he crashed into a marijuana dispensary in Happy Valley, Oregon.

Alan Alcantara hit an empty parked car near Stumptown Cannabis at around 1:05am and then crashed into the back wall of the business, according to a probable cause affidavit.

He caused more than $1,000 in damage to the other car and the building, court papers said. Alcantara's passenger was taken to a hospital with a concussion, and Alcantara admitted to a Clackamas County sheriff's deputy to using marijuana before the crash, the affidavit said.

He was booked into the Clackamas County Jail on suspicion of driving under the influence of intoxicants, reckless driving, reckless endangering, criminal mischief and fourth-degree assault. A worker at Stumptown Cannabis said that the business was closed at the time of the crash.
