Fiona Apple

ADMITTED Drugs Were Hers ... Cops Say

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.

Ignorance, or slept through 5ththe grade math?

1oz = 28.3495231 grams
X 16 oz = 453.59237 grams
÷ 100 = 4.5359237 grams

About a gram over an eighth ounce, and a bud weighing this much would be about the size of a golf ball, not a friggin' baseball, Einstein.

Hash is very compressed and dense and would be much smaller in comparison. Maybe about the size of an after dinner mint. And I sure as hell wish I had some...

To the writer - smoke more pot. It might help with your basic computational and averaging skills.

Now, isn't that foolish to go through the motions and waste border time, police time, court time, paperwork time, when in fact, research shows that weed is considerably less harmful than cigarettes and alcohol. Blame the politicians, because this is nothing but political bullchit. Your tax dollars payed for every one of those steps, and you might as well have thrown that money into a fire pit, because you got absolutely no value for the deductions from your paycheque that paid for those steps.

Arresting someone for marijuana possession should be a crime.

Way to be over dramatic. I guess .01 pounds sounds bigger than the 4.5 GRAMS that it is equal to. Definitely nowhere near the size of a baseball, that amount would fit in an infants palm.

Someone was probably killed somewhere by a drunk driver while they wasted their time arresting her. Great job, officers...

I want to buy my weed from TMZ if they think that .01 is the size of a baseball.

OH! And might I add. While they were taking care of this little tiny bit of weed, 30 illegal Mexicans crossed the border. WTG fu(ktards.

.01 lb = 4.5 grams. That's not sport ball-sized, buddy. Y'alls dealers must be generous as ****.
