Appellant appeals his conviction for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute in violation of the Georgia Controlled Substances Act. Although appellant bases his appeal upon the state's failure to produce evidence at trial sufficient to verify that the substance was indeed marijuana, the transcript reveals that a paper sack, containing the green leafy material packaged in a clear plastic bag and two manilla envelopes, was identified by the arresting officer as the sack found in appellant's possession. Subsequently, the state tendered the paper sack, with its contents, into evidence as State's Exhibit 1 "with the stipulation that it is marijuana." The trial court thereupon invited objection by appellant's counsel who responded that he had no objection to the admission of the sack, only to certain unidentified rolling papers apparently contained therein.
Benjamin F. Easterlin IV, for appellant.
