The internet becomes divided over this woman’s claims that ‘wind blew cocaine in her purse’

We know very well the repercussions that await us if we were ever suspected of carrying illegal substances. In today’s socio-political landscape, nothing is more taboo than being caught in possession of drugs.

Well, this 26-year old woman in Florida, United States, was recently apprehended by police for carrying cocaine that was supposedly “blown by the wind.”

According to the police report obtained by Buzzfeed News, the police stopped the vehicle of Kennecia Katie Beatrice Posey because it reeked of marijuana.

Upon further investigation by police officers, it was found that Posey was in possession of a small bag of marijuana and 0.5 grams of cocaine in her bag.  She was then reportedly charged with a misdemeanor count for marijuana possession and a felony count for cocaine possession.

Though Posey admits to carrying marijuana, she denies bringing cocaine in her purse.

“I don’t know anything about any cocaine. It’s a windy day. It must have flown through the window and into my purse,” Posey says in the police report.

Since Posey’s story was released via social media, many expressed their thoughts about it online.

Some took her side saying that it was entirely possible, what with the weather conditions in Florida.
