(CBS) - Two men are reportedly accused of robbing a man after arranging a meeting with the victim to buy medical marijuana, according to police.

Prosecutors say Justin Pasztor, 21, and Ryan Lueck, 18, arranged to purchase pot by e-mail with a medical marijuana seller, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. When the man met with them on Feb 4. in Seattle, they allegedly robbed him at gunpoint.

According to police documents obtained by the newspaper, the victim told investigators that he only provides marijuana for medicinal purposes and sells to customers who have medical marijuana cards.

The two men allegedly robbed an unspecified amount of marijuana, his wallet and his cell phone.

They have been charged with first-degree robbery.

Pasztor remains jailed on $150,000 bail. Lueck is not in custody.
