Life in Prison for Pot Brownies?

August 18, 2014 – Jacob Lavoro has been charged with a First Degree felony for making marijuana-laced brownies in Texas.

The question is, why is this charge so severe? Law enforcement based the charge on the weight of the brownies instead of the weight of the drug used in the recipe, treating sugar, cocoa and butter the same as the hash oil in the dessert.
