The Smoking Gun: A 21-year-old Nebraska motorist was arrested Saturday night after a cop discovered his marijuana stash inside a plastic container labeled “Not Weed,” police report. Jordan Meier was traveling with three passengers around 9 PM when a Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office deputy pulled over his 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo on a Lincoln street for a traffic violation, according to a police report. Meier was subsequently “placed into custody for DUI,” investigators noted. During a post-arrest inventory search of Meier’s vehicle, cops located a 16-ounce plastic container (which once held Land O’Lakes sour cream) under the front passenger seat. They found more than 11 grams of marijuana inside. Asked why, he replied, “I don’t know…I thought I was being funny. Inside joke with myself, I suppose.” He added, “Never thinking it would be confiscated.”
Well whatta ya know? Who would have thought that labeling your weed-filled sour cream container “Not Weed” would lead to your arrest? It just seems like a fool proof plan to me. Put your weed in a sour cream container, make it known that there’s nothing suspicious inside, I don’t see where he went wrong. Just got caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Lesson learned. Old Man Law is really cracking down. Nobody’s safe. And all Land O’Lakes products are subject to inspection. It’s a sick world we live in, let me tell you.
