Elderly couple pulled over after their Buckeye car decal is mistaken for a marijuana leaf.
"Neither the Tennessee Highway Patrol nor the Shelby County sheriff’s office in Memphis had information about the traffic stop. A marijuana sticker would not be a sufficient reason to stop a car, said a spokeswoman for the West Tennessee Drug Task Force."
"Regardless, Tennessee police apparently aren't botany experts. If they were, they’d know a marijuana leaf has seven leaflets (see above picture) and a narrow shape as compared to the Buckeye leaf, which is fat and has five leaflets.
At least that’s what it says on the Internet. I have no firsthand knowledge of this.
As for Jonas-Boggioni, she acknowledged the cop’s wishes, but got back in her car without removing the sticker.
“I didn’t take it off,” Jonas-Boggioni told the paper. “This little old lady is no drug dealer.”
Just an avid Ohio State fan."
