Poker pro Micah Raskin is in even more trouble, the “dangerous individual” now being charged federally with distribution of 220 lbs (100kg) of marijuana – with a street value of $500,000 - as well as the possession charges we reported on earlier this year

Long Islander Raskin, whose Hendon Mob listing has his lifetime tournament earnings sitting at $1,947,156 including several 6-figure scores – is alleged to have ‘received drug shipments and stored them at his home and a storage facility, before a courier delivered them to Baltimore, Washington, Virginia and New York’, according to AP reports on the latest charges laid against him.

“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.”

Police said he was selling the plant at $1,400 per pound, seizing “paperwork documenting payments and prices" in the biggest case Nassau County

Raskin also had ‘a high-end SUV, a 2016 Chevrolet Corvette, $140,000 in cash and “high-end artwork believed to be worth more than $100,000,' according to a CardPlayer report on the case by Brian Pempus.
