A college professor is now facing charges, accused of trafficking in marijuana.
Kentucky State Police say 62-year-old Larry Belknap had more than eight and a half pounds of marijuana in his Madison County home.
Belknap is a professor at Eastern Kentucky University.
EKU officials said Friday night that they received a statement from Belknap saying, "I am voluntarily resigning my position at EKU."
Earlier in the day, they said Belknap had been relieved of his teaching duties, pending the outcome of the case.
