Michael Slezak, 24, Sequim, was arrested and booked into the Clallam County jail on two counts of delivery of a controlled substance (marijuana), possession of more than 40 grams of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and possession of an hallucinogen.

All the offenses are Class B felonies, which carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.
