Drug charges against chef Tim Maslow stemming from an incident at the Canadian border in February have been dropped. Maslow, the chef-owner of Ribelle in Brookline, was stopped at the border in Vermont Feb. 26, and agents discovered 22.5 pounds of marijuana edibles, a pipe, and another controlled substance. He was charged with felony possession of marijuana. All charges have been dismissed, his attorney David Lipshutz said Monday.
