GET HIGH WITH THE ACR HIGH FIVE TOURNAMENT - 1.5 MIllion GTD

A poker pro is accused of selling marijuana 20 lbs (100kg) of marijuana – with a street value of $500,000.

The Charges against Micah Raskin come just months after he was arrested for possession.

A resident of Long Island, New York, Raskin is alleged to have received drug shipments and stored them in his storage facility.  A courier is said to have delivered drugs out of state to Baltimore, Washington and Virginia as well as other locales throughout New York.

“With this seizure of more than 350 pounds of marijuana and huge quantities of hash oils, this alleged dealer’s time living the high life selling drugs is over,” said Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas, with Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder previously describing Raskin as a “dangerous individual.”

Raskin has won just shy of $2 million in live career tournaments to date.
