Fiona Apple

ADMITTED Drugs Were Hers ... Cops Say

EXCLUSIVE

Fiona Apple "freely admitted" the hash and the weed on her tour bus belonged to her when cops discovered the drugs last night ... so says the Hudspeth County Sheriff's Office.

Cops say .... Apple's 2004 tour bus entered the U.S. Border Patrol Checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, TX around 8 PM on Sept. 19 and officers performed a "routine" check of the vehicle.

During the sweep, officers used drug-sniffing dogs ... which detected the presence of narcotics in a blue backpack.

Cops say the backpack contained a glass container with .01 pounds of weed and .01 pounds of hash.

For all of you squares law-abiders unfamiliar with drug weight -- the weed is equivalent to the size of a baseball ... and the hash is equivalent to the size of a golf ball.

Cops say Apple "freely admitted" the drugs were hers and she was placed under arrest.

According to police, Apple spent the night in jail -- and was released earlier today on $10,000 bond.

I have to respect that she took responsibility for the drugs. It saves money when we own our on behavior. Plus it is a fine display of courage.

@Knuckledragger: C'mon...really. Billy-boy, at-first
your fixation with me -not unlike others here- bothered me. Now, it just bores me.
Now, go get into the full-fetal-position freak-out,
because I just gave your name.
YESHUA -Billy boy- REIGNS!
ALL, for The Greater Glory of The True and Living YAHWEH!

"squares" ... right. THC changes the brain makeup and can bring about Schizophrenia in susceptible individuals (and you don't really know you are susceptible until it hits you). Moreover, THC is stored in fat (brain is mostly fat) and just sits there until the half life takes it out of your system little by little (the half life is something like 30 days). That's why potheads are so SLOW and STUPID. Because pot is so not a harmless drug. But potheads rarely commit any crimes so let them be.
