Cannabis Activist Dana Beal Busted for Marijuana Trafficking in Idaho

January 17, 2024 · CelebStoner

Irwin Dana Beal is behind bars tonight in Gooding County Jail in Southern Idaho, charged with felony marijuana trafficking. Bail was set at $250,000.

The legendary activist who founded Cures Not Wars and the Global Marijuana March and a YIPPIE organizer was arrested on January 15 by Idaho State Police in Gooding, ID. A vehicle malfunction led to the police apprehension. CelebStoner has requested a copy of the police report.

Beal is known to traffick in large quantities. When asked how much, a Sheriff’s Office rep says it was “quite a bit.” Beal was nabbed with 186 pounds in Wisconsin in 2011 and served several years in jail where he survived a heart attack.

He is a survivor, but at 77, this might be Beal’s toughest challenge yet. Possession of more than 25 pounds with intent to distribute in Idaho carries mandatory-minimum sentences of five years in jail and a $50,000 fine.
