County Attorney says Silver Summit man did not sell fentanyl-laced pot

Recreational use of marijuana is illegal in Utah.

A Summit County man arrested earlier this year on suspicion of selling fentanyl-laced marijuana is not guilty and the County Attorney’s office has issued an apology.

Summit County Sheriff’s deputies arrested 25-year-old Silver Summit resident Brooks Glisson in May, after another man told police he had a bad reaction after smoking some of the weed Glisson sold him.

Officers believed the marijuana contained fentanyl, the potent and fast-acting synthetic opioid that has driven a drug overdose crisis nationwide. Preliminary field tests detected fentanyl in a sample of the marijuana.

KPCW reported on the incident when it happened.

However, definitive results from Utah’s Forensic Toxicology Laboratory determined that the weed did not contain fentanyl.

In a press release, the Summit County Attorney’s Office said it will not file charges against Glisson as a result.

The attorney’s office also said it regrets that Mr. Glisson’s name was associated with the distribution of fentanyl, and the public should remember that people are innocent until proven guilty.
