LANCASTER – A Lancaster traffic stop turned into a drug bust after deputies discovered a mobile drug lab inside a car that was stopped for speeding, authorities said.

The incident happened early Monday, when a Lancaster deputy who was working traffic enforcement stopped a speeding car on Avenue L near 35th Street West, according to Lancaster Community Relations deputy Michael Rust.

While talking to the driver, 23-year-old Jeremy Taylor, the deputy learned that Taylor was in possession of marijuana and hashish, Rust stated.

During the investigation, the deputy found additional containers of hashish as well as several pieces of equipment used in manufacturing hashish inside Taylor’s car.

Collectively, the equipment makes a complete “Hash Lab,” Rust stated.

Taylor was arrested and faces several drug related charges. His bail was set at $75,000.

    This shouldn’t be anything more than a weed charge and a slap on the wrist,
    because that’s all it is. You moronic, uneducated twerps need to do some
    research and quit acting like this is Heroin.

    Hash, Honey Butter Oil, etc. are
    simply concentrates derived from THC.
    It is a method popular with medical patients
    as well as recreational users. Vaporization reduces a patient’s exposure to the toxins (such as tar, carbon monoxide, and the aromatic hydrocarbons) that are in marijuana smoke. It is controversial whether lung cancer or emphysema can be attributed to marijuana use but chronic marijuana smokers have been shown to have an increased risk of respiratory infections like bronchitis. A recent scientific study demonstrated that the respiratory symptoms associated with smoking marijuana (such as cough, phlegm, tightness in chest) were much less severe in patients that used vaporizers to deliver their medication.

    Patients who have irritation of the throat and airways from smoking find that vaporization removes this irritation. Patients who are concerned about the respiratory hazards of smoking marijuana should use a vaporizer if inhalation is preferred. Physicians recommend vaporizers over smoking due to the clear benefits of avoiding the toxins in the smoke. Vaporizers are now considered the best and healthiest way to inhale medical marijuana.

    Jeremy Taylor should also be arrested for statutory rape. When he was 22 he was dating a 16/17 year old. What a pig. Hope he goes down hard for this.

      Haha are you clueless or what? That 16/17 year old little slut was really enjoying the attention. All teenage girls want is an older boyfriend. You did too but nobody was interested i’m guessing.

    Micro brews are all the rage! The Blvd has one and Palmdale has a few! This dumb ass was making ear wax while mobile, what the hell. That [removed] its nothing but a headache in a jar. Just smoke bud like everyone else and forget your gpen for a bit. (yeah its cool, but was it worth the ringing of the ears?) These journalists act as if this dude was doing a shake and bake with meth, no, it was an extract, if he was using butane, let him go and sell it to those truly in need of the Darwin award. I smoke every day, but not that nasty [removed]. Btw, for anyone who has yet to try extract or ear wax, it is nothing special, still thc, but a lot of it. Makes for a great one hitter but wax causes you’re frontal portion of your forehead feel floaty, then the sore throat and lung wheeze ensue, not fun. You can get more by buying top shelf bud and having a bowl, wax is an excuse to sell something that has gained reputation through articles like this and “safe and sane/ dare” at the cost of fifty dollars a gram. This is not a mystery potion, its bud and butane…

      Your a [removed] with a valid point, your herbs are inferior product with lots of plant matter and wood… Enjoy your smoke, me and mr mobile (when hes released) will be enjoying the finest hash’s known to man!

        Also there’s no butane left over, otherwise all you would see in the picture would be butane, cannabis, and an extraction tube…that big thing on the left is, I assume, his vacuum purger. Not that I expect you to know what you’re talking about (pissedoffnative)

      Get real NRA, this is the entitled generation.Surely you don’t expect a 23 year old without any training or education to work for minimum wage do you? Why, he might have to work full time or have another job on the side.

    Meanwhile in related news; Hundreds of people with beer and alcohol in their vehicles were also pulled over in America that day,and were not arrested.

    This is not a lab anymore than a twelve-pack is a brewery.
