Franklin County has a Route Marijuana running through its boundaries. Officially it’s known as Interstate 44, which enters the county at Sullivan and travels through St. Clair and Pacific. I-44 is a short distance from Washington and Union.

It has been known for years that marijuana is transported through the county by vehicles using I-44. Every now and then, the illegal drugs are found in vehicles that are stopped for whatever reasons. This past week, officers traced a car to St. Clair that had avoided an I-44 drug interdiction check point east of St. Clair. With the use of a drug-sniffing dog, more than 30 pounds of marijuana were found in the trunk of the vehicle. Officers said the street value was $90,000 to $100,000.
