October 19, 1972

STATE OF OREGON, RESPONDENT,
v.
KEITH ALAN HOLLIS, APPELLANT



Appeal from Circuit Court, Lane County. Edwin E. Allen, Judge. No. 72-0320.

Stephen A. Hutchinson, Eugene, argued the cause for appellant. With him on the brief were Combs, Hutchinson, Harrell & Cox, Eugene.

Thomas H. Denney, Assistant Attorney General, Salem, argued the cause for respondent. With him on the brief were Lee Johnson, Attorney General, and John W. Osburn, Solicitor General, Salem.

Schwab, Chief Judge, and Foley and Thornton, Judges.

Per Curiam

Defendant appeals from a conviction of Criminal Activity in Drugs, ORS 167.207(1), i.e., possession of marihuana, contending: (1) it is not a crime to possess marihuana under the new criminal code; and (2) there was insufficient evidence that he had knowledge that the substance possessed was marihuana.

The first contention has been resolved adversely to defendant's position in State v. Simpson, 11 Or App 271, 501 P2d 1311 (1972), Sup Ct review denied (1973).

The second contention is answered by ORS 167.238 (1), which provides:

"Proof of unlawful manufacture, cultivation, transportation or possession of a narcotic or dangerous drug is prima facie evidence of knowledge of its character."

Affirmed.

Disposition

Affirmed.
