last weekend i went camping up in the mountains by my house.driving back that morning i got pulled over by a cop on a motorcycle. he told me that he
was pulling me over not because i was speeding or breaking any laws, but because one of my headlights were out. even though it was a perfectly clear
morning and the sun was shining bright. then he does the usual license and registration bit and everything checks out. he comes back to my car, sticks
his head in the window and asks me "do you have a physicians note for the marijuana in your car?"
"yes officer, i do." i live in california and i have my medical marijuana card. i am legally allowed to possess up to eight ounces and six plants. i
give him my physicians note, medical card, and my little baggy of marijuana. he should have called my physician to make sure everything was legit,
weighed my marijuana to make sure i was within legal limits, given everything back and i would have been on my way. instead, before even calling my
physician, he instructs me to get out of the car and pats me down. in my jacket pocket i had a brass knuckle belt buckle that i had gotten for a
birthday present. apparently in the state of california, that is a felony weapons charge. then the cop searches the rest of my car, breaking the
stereo in the process. he has me jailed and the car towed. i was fortunate enough to get bailed out, but i also am a thousand dollars in debt because
of that. i have court this wednesday so im sure ill be billed for all that too.
even if it wasnt on a belt. i dont see how that can be classified as a felony.
