Former mountain biking world champion Melissa “Missy” Giove was held on $250,000 bail Thursday after federal authorities said they’ve seized more then 200 pounds of marijuana from a truck she was driving in upstate New York Tuesday. Melissa along with Eric Canori were charged with conspiring to possess and distribute more then 100 kilograms of herb. Not only did they find the 200 lbs of the “magic” weed in her vehicle but authorities also found nearly 200 more lbs of weed and almost 1 million dollars in cash stashed in a closet & basement in Canori’s home. Missy was also ordered to surrender her passport due to the fact that the judge believes she’s a flight risk.
Of course the public defender for Giove claimed the drugs & money found in her vagina truck was planted, possibly by police. Giove was the 1994 downhill world champion but retired from downhill racing in 2003. So my guess is she was in need of money. I don’t condone getting caught driving around with hundreds of pounds of weed but what puzzles me more then that is the attempt at claiming the drugs were planted. When you get involved in illegal activities you know the consequences that can occur so you can’t cry wolf. Being a herbal enthusiast gives her some points but getting caught and blaming others isn’t cool so unfortunately Missy, no tokes for you this evening.
