Speeding, marijuana shirt lead to charges

By Judy Harrison, BDN Staff

HOLDEN, Maine — Two teenage girls may have learned a tough but valuable lesson Sunday.

If you’re going to have marijuana in your bra and drug paraphernalia in your car, don’t wear a marijuana T-shirt while speeding.

A car driven by a 16-year-old Eddington resident was stopped about 11 a.m. Sunday for driving 59 mph in a 35 mph zone, according to Holden police Officer Christopher Greeley.

She was wearing a T-shirt sporting a picture of a large marijuana leaf, and a plastic marijuana-shaped leaf was attached to her key chain, Greeley said Sunday afternoon. Rolling papers and a pipe were found in the car.

The driver was summoned for speeding and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Her passenger, a 17-year-old from Carmel, had a small amount of marijuana concealed in her bra, Greeley said, and a switchblade knife in her backpack. There also was a picture of a marijuana leaf on her backpack.

The passenger was charged with possession of a switchblade and possession of a usable amount of marijuana.

The names of the juveniles were not released.

The two girls are scheduled in June to appear before a District Court judge at the Penobscot Judicial Center on the misdemeanor charges.
