Comedian Ralphie May was detained last week in Guam after coming through customs with a bag of marijuana in his suitcase.
May, who has a medical marijuana card, explains: “When I got to baggage claim, I actually walked up to the dog. I love dogs and petted Nickey, the beautiful shepherd mix, and she sat down. That indicates to the handler that I had marijuana on me. I didn’t know that, I just thought that dog loved me. Then another dog came over and it sat down as well and I petted that dog too. I was thinking these dogs love me they can tell I’m a dog person.”
May dealt with some very nice customs agents and he explained the mix-up. May says, “The customs agents said they knew I didn’t mean to smuggle drugs into Guam cause no drug smuggler would be stupid enough to walk up to the dogs and pet them.”
May only had to pay a small fine because he was carrying under an oz and was released promptly. [via TMZ]
Interesting. So, what’s the prescription marijuana supposed to be treating? Not obesity.
