Eating raw cannabis is disgusting. Eating it during a traffic stop turns misdemeanor drug possession into felony tampering with evidence. Also, jail walls do not taste like snozzberries and they do not serve liters of cola. While there are many super troopers out on our roadways, many of them take offense and charge individuals who tamper with evidence. If you are pulled over on a Texas roadway, and police can smell or suspect marijuana is present, they may have the right to search your vehicle without your consent. Possession of up to 4 ounces of marijuana, and even driving under the influence of marijuana is a misdemeanor.
However, this is no laughing matter and jail food is not munchie material. In context, 4 ounces of raw cannabis can be the approximate equivalent of 2 full sandwich bags. This eating endeavor is a daunting task for even the best pie eating contestant considering the short walk from the officer’s car to your driver’s side window. And, If attempted, the next guy who says Shenanigans will be wearing a badge. The next person you will need to call needs to be a great attorney.
