This made me laugh..............

Great-granny's sweeteners spark drugs probe
Police questioned a great-grandmother about drugs after they found artificial sweeteners in her purse.
Former magistrate Marilyn Gordon, 72, from South Shields, was quizzed after officers became suspicious.
They were also suspicious about credit card fraud when they found the Sunday school teacher was carrying a card in someone else's name.
Her daughter Fiona Smith, 44, told the Sunday Sun her mother went to the police station after losing her purse while shopping in South Shields.
She said: "To her surprise someone had been kind enough to hand it in to lost property - but that was when her trouble began."
Officers began to ask her about the white tablets in her purse.
Ms Smith added: "My mother told me the police conducted a test on the tablets to see if they were drugs, and apparently, they reckoned it proved positive for cocaine."
The police then began to quiz her about the bank card which was not in her name.
"She has a card to my savings account because she sometimes makes deposits for me," Ms Smith said.
"It was only when she started to insist the white tablets were sweeteners that the police relented and decided to do another test."
A spokesman for South Shields police said: "Once the true situation was established, the lady left the police station."

I bet this was her response...............

What can you say? I wonder how many valuble police hours, were wasted doing that?
Nevermind at least some kind person had handed her purse in. That gives me hope in these terible times. Love reading your posts.

Lol! I had a similar experience once when I was giving up smoking... I don't know if they still make them, but, about 15-20 years ago, health shops sold herbal cigarettes, designed to ween you off the caffeine, whilst continuing your habit... and then to break the habit later.

Well, what could I lose? Bought a pack, and they were the most revolting smell ever - like burning dung with icing sugar sprinkled on top! But, I was determined so I smoked them outside in the fresh air, so as not to inflict them on everyone holding their nose as I lit up...

Then one night, I dared to try them at a club. Within 5 minutes of lighting up, I was taken by the elbow and drawn into a side-room, where I was basically accused of taking drugs!!

Even when I showed them the packet they were dubious! This also happened to a friend from the States, who smoked these clove-cigarettes... they smelt so sweet, no-one could believe they weren't bad :-D
