A New Hampshire police department has issued a public service announcement with an odd mug shot after a man was arrested with marijuana in his car. Hampstead police said in a release Monday, "as a public service announcement—it is illegal to possess recreational marijuana in New Hampshire, even if you only 'smoke it in Massachusetts.'" The announcement came after the arrest of 27-year-old Selket Taylor, reports WMUR-TV, who was pulled over for using his cellphone while driving.
Police say they arrested Taylor after they saw he had a bag of marijuana in a cup holder, and the AP notes that in addition to his creative excuse, he also gave police quite the mugshot. Taylor has been charged with possession of a controlled drug, transporting a controlled drug in a motor vehicle, and use of an electronic mobile device. Recreational use and possession of small amounts of marijuana were legalized in Massachusetts last year. (Read more dumb criminals stories.)
