Dylan Lindh, 27, is accused of drug distribution charges after being pulled over in Grand Junction on Thursday.
Prosecution argued for a high, cash-only bond at his arraignment hearing Friday, stating the value of the marijuana and marijuana concentrate in his vehicle was valued at more than $40,000.
Officers pulled Lindh over after seeing him follow too closely to another vehicle while changing lanes about 3 p.m. on Thursday, according to the arrest affidavit.
When the vehicle stopped, the officer observed Lindh light a cigarette, which he felt could be a tactic to mask the odor of illegal drugs, the affidavit said.
Police reportedly found several packages containing marijuana as well as approximately 850 THC vape cartridges.
He received a $40,000 cash or surety bond from Mesa County Court on Friday.

■ Ben Snell, 23, was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct and trespassing on Tuesday.
