An officer stopped a car for a traffic violation.  While speaking to the driver (Quesada), he admitted to having marijuana in the car.  A consent search resulted in the recovery of the marijuana and a canister of tear gas.  After speaking with the suspect, the officers determined that he was  not allowed to legally possess the tear gas due to a prior felony conviction.
