The trooper pulled over a white Chevrolet SUV traveling north on Interstate 15 for traveling too close to another vehicle.

According to a court documents, the trooper noticed jars that looked like those sold at marijuana dispensaries. The officer asked the men if they had medical cannabis cards, and they said they did not.
