Student allegedly selling marijuana from dorm room

A Grambling State student allegedly selling marijuana out of his dorm room was using a social media app to find customers, according to police.

Dajohn J. Hall, 18, of Lancaster, Tex., was arrested late Thursday night after a GSU Police detective saw a message on social media offering marijuana for sale. The detective responded to the message asking to buy several grams of marijuana. The anonymous seller gave his location as a room in Holland Hall, an on-campus dorm.

When officers arrived at the dorm, the smell of marijuana was detected coming from the room. A small amount of marijuana was found on a dresser. Hall admitted he had additional marijuana, and a large vacuum-sealed bag of marijuana was recovered.

During questioning, Hall admitted he had been selling marijuana and that day was his “last day,” according to the officer’s report. 

Hall was booked for possession of marijuana, violation of the controlled substances act (school zone), and attempted distribution of marijuana.

Bail was set at $55,000.
