Two men were arrested on felony drug charges after one of them received
treatment for a hunting injury, according to Dave Orr, Stutsman County

of a controlled substance Class II, both Class C felonies. They were also
charged with possession of a controlled substance (marijuana) and possession
of marijuana paraphernalia, both Class A misdemeanors.
A Class C felony is punishable by a maximum penalty of five years in
prison and a $5,000 fine. A Class A misdemeanor is punishable by a maximum
penalty of one year in prison and a $2,000 fine.
