Emerging reports have it that an American woman has attributed wind to the drug found in her possession.
According to a news report by ABC local affiliate, police arrested Kennecia Posey following a stop in Fort Pierce, Florida, on March 21.
The report cited police extract of the case as stating that an officer approached Ms Posey’s car and smelled an odor of illicit medicine coming from inside.
But as the officer searched further, a purse containing drug in separate bags was found on her lap.
Ms Posey, 26, admitted ownership of the illicit medicine, but had an interesting excuse for the illicit medicine.
