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.

What I don't get (and it doesn't mention it here) is that in Texas possession of small quantities of weed is a misdeamenor yet possession of any amount of hash is a felon. Newsflash they are the same thing, just in different forms. Stupid stupid laws

.01 pounds of weed and .01 pounds of hash.

No way! 1.0 pound of weed would be a lot but "point oh one" pound is a baseball??? No way. .01 pound=.16 ounces. 16/100ths of a pound can't be that big!

wow, the war on drugs sure is doing a GRRRREAT job! Locking people up for dried flowers and pressed flower extract is the very APEX of FAIL. But hey, if you want to drink yourself into an alcoholic coma, BY ALL MEANS, QUITE LEGAL.

Go get the people that are selling drugs that matter. Weed and hash are not drugs. Bath salts, cocaine, meth, crack and heroin however, are.

GO FIONA!! Do you realize we're talking about a measly 4.5 grams of pot and the same of hash?!?! THE ROCKEFELLER DRUG LAWS MUST BE OVERTURNED!! POT AND HASH SHOULD BE LEGAL IN THE USA. Grow it, sell it, tax it - just like alcohol and cigarettes -- AND ERASE THE DEFICIT in a year or so!! Fiona was railroaded by STUPID laws - in a state full of stupid - Texasss

For Weed??? It's 2012! It should be legal by now. Why not crack down on Alcohol Texas? Thousands die every year from drunk driving accidents, but that's ok right? Because everyone loves beer and it makes millions a year, right? How about all those weed related accidents? Oh yeah, almost never.
