A Florida woman was taken into custody on drug possession charges after she couldn't string a cop along and convince him that the bag of weed in her purse was actually a tampon.
The officer initially approached Alisa Stone because he spotted her walking unsteadily in a bike lane on the street, ignoring the sidewalk just a few feet to her left. As he was preparing a written warning, the cop asked if he could check her bag – a decision he made after she voluntarily admitted to having drug arrests on her record.
When Stone reluctantly agreed, he spotted the bag, which she insisted was the feminine hygiene product. Pressed further, she reached in to the bag and pulled out an actual tampon, which was speckled with pot residue, and gave the officer another clear look at the bag of wacky weed. She faces misdemeanor charges. (TC Palm)
