Police State USA. The next exhibit...

via Yahoo Sports.

Apparently Ohio State – and college football in general – isn’t very popular in the state of Tennessee.At least not with the police.Bonnie Jonas-Boggioni, 65, and her husband were driving home to Plano, Texas from Columbus after attending her mother-in-law’s funeral when a pair of black police SUV’s stopped the couple a few miles outside of Memphis.“Knowing I wasn’t speeding, I couldn’t imagine why,” Jonas-Boggioni told the Columbus Dispatch. “They were very serious. They had the body armor and the guns.”On the back of Jonas-Boggioni’s car was a Buckeye leaf decal, similar to the one players’ have on their helmets, and cops mistakenly thought it was marijuana leaf.Yes, really.“What are you doing with a marijuana sticker on your bumper?” one of the cops asked Jonas-Boggioni.
After trying to explain that the sticker was not a marijuana leaf and that she and her husband were not trafficking drugs cross-country, the police advised Jonas-Boggioni to remove the sticker as to not cause any more confusion.You know, just in case there were any other moronic drug cops out there that didn’t actually know what a marijuana leaf looked like.
Wow.

No justification, just a sticker.  I'm no longer surprised.

  1. Ok... culture shock in. Marijuana is no way as prosecuted here as in the States.

    What part of the 2nd amendment doesn't apply to stickers?

    Take care.
