A Long Valley woman pulled over for failing to observe a traffic signal was charged, along with her passenger, with possession of LSD with intent to distribute, Hackettstown Police said.

Tara O’Neill, 18, of Long Valley, and Pavel Skorlupin, 19, of Parsippany were in possession of the hallucinogenic drug after an investigation Saturday night when O'Neill was pulled over, police said.

Skorlupin was charged with possession of LSD, possession of LSD with the intent to distribute in a school zone and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said. He is being in the Warren County Correctional Facility in lieu of $10,000 bail.

I DO NOT hope two people this young get "a long and strange one behind bars" what does that even mean??? I am glad they got caught, and I hope the punishment they are given, educates them and holds them responsible for their actions, I hope it teaches them this is not acceptable and why, and I hope they clean up their acts and live successful lives where they are assets to the community around them. They are a part of a family and deserve a chance to change their behavior, if they keep it up, well thats another story

Oh yeah, let throw drug users in prison so they get beaten and raped, and become hardened criminals. That will really benefit society! Prohibition was a dismal failure, but for some asinine reason we thing it will work with drugs. The war, and the billions we've spent supporting it, has been a dismal failure, but for some reason, we can't pull our heads out of our collective arses, and realize this.
