State Highway Patrol stops New York man with psychedelic drugs


Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized haliucinogens from a New York man during a traffic stop.

During the traffic stop in Guernsey County, troopers seized 10 strips containing psychedelic phenethylamines, which produce psychedelic effects similar to LSD, but more intense and longer lasting - usually six to 10 hours.

The driver, Brandon Hockenbury, 23, of Gowanda, N.Y., was charged with drug abuse, a fifth-degree felony, and possession of drug paraphernalia, a fourth-degree misdemeanor. The passenger, Joseph Cascioli, 22, of Ithaca, N.Y., was charged with misdemeanors for possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.

The seizure occurred at 12:20 p.m. Sept. 3 after the 1998 Subaru Legacy was stopped for following too close on Interstate 70. Troopers approached the care and saw the passenger smoking marijuana.
